Watermelon Lemonade Slushy


Can you believe how quickly the summer seems to be going by? In just three weeks the kids will be back in school here in Colorado. While most love summer and the sunshine, I'm not totally a big fan. I do, however prefer summer over winter, but just not the scorching weather that we have been having lately. Temperatures have been soaring into the 90's and while we haven't reached 100 degrees quite as yet, we might as well be. The weather has kept me indoors and my water delivery has even been increased because we've been drinking a lot more water to stay hydrated. You don't want to be found dehydrated in weather such as this. I'm a big fan of slushy's, and you would find me at my local 711 or even at my Post Exchange gas station, because there is always a deal on slushy's during the summer months. I've however found a great way to make my own and today I'll be sharing with you my Watermelon Lemonade Slushy. If you love watermelons and if you love slushy's then you will be sure to love this. It's a hit with the kids and adults alike. Who doesn't love slushy's?


Watermelon Lemonade Slushy

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup Watermelon - seeds removed and chopped
2 Lemons - fresh squeezed juice
1 Lime - fresh squeezed juice
1/4 cup Sugar
1 cup of Water
6-7 Mint leaves- minced
2 cups of Ice

DIRECTIONS:

In a blender add all of your ingredients and blend on high for 1 minute until frothy. You're however going to want to place the ice and fruit at the bottom and the rest of the ingredients at the top.

Pour your slushy into your glass.

Garnish with a mint sprig and lemon wheel and enjoy.


Have an amazing rest of the summer!

    1. Oh I'm so sorry to hear that. I was diagnosed with GD with my first child and it was no fun in the park. I hope it goes away after you have the baby and watermelons will be good even after then.

    1. It is much easier. We totally lack humidity here and we're also so much closer to the sun because of our altitude. My water delivery always increase in the summer because I need to stay hydrated.
