Strawberry-Lime Watermelon Slush
This watermelon slush is the BEST summertime refreshment drink! All it takes is three simple, healthy ingredients... naturally sweetened with no refined sugar!
Prep Time5 minutes
Freezing Time1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time5 minutes
Servings: 2 small slushes
- 2 cups seedless watermelon (frozen)
- 1 heaping cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice (about 1 juicy lime)
- Optional: 1-2 tsp. coconut sugar or agave to sweeten, fresh mint or basil, ice cubes
Cube watermelon and place in freezer for at least an hour or two.*
When ready to make, rinse and hull the strawberries.
Place frozen watermelon, strawberries, and fresh lime juice in blender.
Blend until slushy and serve immediately.
*Freezing watermelon: I set the melon cubes on a baking sheet (or shallow non-glass bowl) to freeze. They fully freeze after about 2-3 hours and become very hard. If you freeze them in a bowl, the cubes will be stuck together (and often to the bowl!) so just let thaw for 15-20 minutes before using.
If freezing a big batch, it’s sometimes easier to freeze them in a single file on a baking sheet first, then once they fully freeze to place them in a storage container for longer-term.
If your blender isn’t very strong, only freeze the watermelon for about 60-90 minutes or let thaw a bit before blending.
Try this with lemon juice instead of lime (or a combo!)
If using fresh strawberries, you may want a few ice cubes to keep it extra “slushy”, or you could freeze your hulled strawberries with the watermelon if you’d like.
Depending on how sweet your watermelon & strawberries are, you may need some extra sweetener to taste – agave, coconut sugar, etc.
