It’s been a hot summer, but we don’t mind! In the northeast summers are short & winters are long, so we enjoy it whole heartedly, heat & all! Summer is just one more excuse to play with new recipes & seasonal finds in the kitchen and we love anything that keeps us cool & refreshed. This watermelon slushy is just that, cool & refreshing. The added bonus is that it’s quick & simple to make.
You can make it in a blender, but even better…you can enter to win the ZOKU giveaway (below) that we have going on & make this in the Slush Maker. This giveaway package just adds to the summer fun and experimentation that the entire family will LOVE!
by Jodie Fitz3 cups watermelon, diced
4 cups ice
2 lemons, fresh
2 cups water
½ cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cut the lemons in half. Squeeze the lemon juice from the lemons. If you have a citrus juicer simply squeeze the juice right into a blender pitcher. If you have to squeeze by hand, squeeze the juice into a glass or bowl first so that you can extract any seeds before adding the juice to the blender.
Add the lemon juice, watermelon, ice, water, honey and extract to the blender and blend well.
Pour and serve!
Beware: Brain Freeze will follow if you drink to fast!
Quick Tip: Watermelon is easy to cut with a plastic knife or butter knife for the youngest of cooks in your kitchen!
