Watermelon Slushy

watermelonMy daughter found a watermelon drink recipe when she was 9 and eliminated the “yucky” ingredients, added one of her own, creating this super-easy summer slushy.  She’s been making this every summer since!


5 cups of watermelon, cut into small pieces (see note below)

1 cup of orange juice (pulp free)

6 oz. can of frozen lemonade concentrate


Lay watermelon pieces on a cookie sheet and freeze for about an hour. The melon does not need to be rock-hard.  Combine the frozen watermelon, orange juice and lemonade concentrate in a blender and process until smooth.  Pour slushy mix into cups and serve, or place cups in the freezer to save.

Note: If you have the patience to pull out the seeds, we have found that the consistency of seeded watermelon is slightly better for a slushy than the seedless watermelon.  If you opt for seedless, it’s still refreshing & yummy!watermelon_slices
