Seasonal recipe: Watermelon slushee
- 2 cups cubed watermelon, placed in freezer for about an hour if you have the time
- 1 1/2 cups ice
- juice of 1 lemon
- juice of 1 lime
- ½ c natural lemon/lime flavored seltzer
- 1/4 c sugar
- Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
I used watermelon because I had a lot of it on hand. You could try this with other fruit like cherries, blueberries, strawberries or raspberries. Maybe even mix and match fruit.
The fruit doesn't have to be frozen, but it helps to make a thicker slushee if it's frozen.
