It’s pretty darn simple, and you might already have this stuff around. Just roughly chop some strawberries.
And juice a lemon
Toss both in your blender along with some cubed watermelon and some sugar,
and blend blend blend. When its nice and smooth, add ice cubes until it reaches your desired level of slushie–ness. I think I went for about 4 cups at least.
Pour it into cups and top with an umbrella if you are like me and tiny umbrellas make you happy.
Recipe from Taste of Home
2 cups cubed seedless watermelon
1 pint fresh strawberries, halved (I actually used a little less than a pint. Maybe 3/4 of it)
1/3 C sugar
1/3 C fresh lemon juice
2-4 C ice cubes
In a blender, combine the watermelon, strawberries, sugar and lemon juice; cover and process on high until smooth. With blender running, gradually add ice cubes until desired consistency is reached. Pour into chilled glasses and serve immediately.
Yield: 5-7 cups
AND- the best thing? I had some left-over, and left-over slushie just doesn’t work very well, so I just poured it in some Popsicle molds. These were some of the best Popsicle we’ve ever had! They reminded my husband and I of the whole fruit bars we love. Super yummy! I might even make the whole batch into pops next time!
