Watermelon slushies!

It was a hot 3 day weekend.

Nothing better than watermelon slushies and living in a small town to be reminded of why we had a 3 day weekend.

You will want some frozen watermelon (you could non-frozen watermelon and it’ll be more watermelon juice like… unless you add ice), lemons and limes (optional), vanilla extract and agave nectar or unrefined sugar. It’s also good to add some mint!

Start piling everything into the Vitamix:

It really depends upon how much of this you intend to make, but I normally yield about 5 cups.

It’s hard to measure my massive frozen watermelon cuts, but you would want to add the following to a full blender:

  • 1/2 c. of all lime juice or a mix of lemon & lime juice  (I prefer all lime juice)
  • 1 tbsp. of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of agave nectar or sugar
  • 1/3 cup of mint leaves (I LOVE that much mint in this!)

You can easily mix this in with some tonic water (I’d add more sweetener to it though).  I’m not a mixed drink person, but if you are you can add whatever you believe would taste best!

(my apologies for poor picture quality, I grab whatever is available 🙂 )
