watermelon slushy with mint spring and lime

Sparkling Watermelon Slush

It seems like people everywhere are experiencing heat waves, at least across the U.S.  My family and I are finally moved into a home and on our moving day it was 117º here in southern Arizona!  All I can say, is thank goodness for the hardworking people that delivered our household goods.  

The heat here is definitely something to get used to.  My daughter and I seem to run on ice cold drinks, A/C, and whatever juicy fruit we have in our fridge!

Now that I have my Vitamix back, I couldn’t wait to whip up this watermelon slushy!  This drink is so refreshing during the summer.  I think they would even be good with a little vodka or sparkling wine added in for a fun summer cocktail!

Ingredients:

  • 3 to 4 cups watermelon, cubed
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 4 large fresh mint leaves
  • 4 cups ice Cubes*
  • Seltzer Water (I used plain)

Directions:

  1. Put watermelon cubes, lime juice, and mint in a blender and blend until it looks like juice.
  2. Add ice cubes and blend until it forms a slush.
  3. Fill your glass 1/2 to 3/4 full with slush and top with seltzer water.
  4. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!

*Add frozen strawberries in place of ice for a yummy twist.
