Nothing says summer like watermelon. They cool you off, hydrate you and fill your stomach on a hot summer afternoon. Also, they’re the perfect dessert for any BBQ or picnic menu.
I love coming up with new ways to use summer produce that cool you down and taste delicious. This watermelon slush is easy, tastes awesome and will definitely quench your thirst!
I tried making it using fresh watermelon and ice, but the consistency wasn’t what I was looking for so I decided to freeze the watermelon and see if that made a difference.
It definitely worked, producing a silkier more even consistency, so the next time your cutting a watermelon just throw three cups in a freezer bag to have ready whenever you want to make your slush.
