Fresh Watermelon Slushies

IMG_0018

With beautiful weather comes the need for cold, refreshing drinks! This slushy is delicate in flavor and a great way to use watermelon. A little bit of lime juice really enhances the watermelon flavor. Ultimately the recipe below is more of a set of guidelines; make as much as or as little as you want depending on how much watermelon you have. A big watermelon will make a ton of slushy, so keep that in mind.

Ingredients
1 small watermelon
4 tablespoons of lime juice (about 2 juicy limes)
1/3 cup superfine sugar
3-4 cups of ice

Directions
1. Remove the rind and cube the watermelon. Puree the watermelon in a blender until completely smooth. You should have about 4-5 cups of juice, but this totally varies on the size of your watermelon. Whatever you have, work with it. This isn’t exact!
2. Add the lime juice and sugar and blend for 20 seconds.
3. Add the ice and blend until slushy. Serve with a chunk of watermelon on the edge of the glass.
