Summer is all about the refreshingly cool taste of a juicy watermelon! I don’t know about you, but my kids and I could eat watermelon daily. We just love the naturally sweet, juicy flesh and fun scent. Watermelon is an amazing way to get your fiber and stay refreshed in the summer heat. Today, I am sharing how to make the BEST 3 Ingredient Watermelon Slush that is not overly watery or blah!
This watermelon slush scoops out just like the kinds you can find at amusement parks. But, the best part is it tastes even better because, despite its icy texture, it is not made of simply water and flavoring. The trick to the best watermelon slushie is to pre-cut the watermelon into chunks and freeze directly. This ensures that you are not getting a cup of melty watermelon water. The frozen melon blends into an icy, smooth, and moldable texture.
To help the melon blend in the food processor or blender, I added some fresh lime juice, and some Juicy Juice® 100% Juice Cherry. The Juicy Juice 100% Juice Cherry helps to add extra fruit sweetness to the melon, and it also helps the texture. Some people add extra sugar to their watermelon slushies but I find that to be unnecessary. The natural sweetness of the melon and splash of Juicy Juice are all you need!
Sometimes, we even add in some fresh mint leaves to the food processor for an extra refreshing treat! You can easily add some in for some extra yumminess without adding extra calories.
We always have Juicy Juice on hand because the kids love it! We actually just celebrated my son’s birthday and Juicy Juice 100% Juice Grape juice boxes were served to the kids. We love that it is a wholesome beverage that is not chock full of fillers and additives–just 100% fruit juice!
I love these watermelon straws we found at Target–how cute are they?
