frozen watermelon slush is my fave

frozen watermelon slush

There is little in life that disappoints me more than when I bite into a cookie and realize it’s oatmeal raisin not oatmeal chocolate chip and when I spend minutes examining watermelons only to choose a mushy one out. So I was super happy when my sister told me about this slush where you can use up that so-so watermelon simply by freezing it.

To make the slush you need:
– 4 c frozen watermelon cubes
– 1/2 c lemon juice
– 1/2 c sugar (I use less)
– 1/2 c strawberries (fresh or frozen)
– 1 1/2 c water or soda

Put all ingredients in blender and mix until slush like. It’s a perfect compliment to your summer barbecues and the answer to your watermelon fails (and don’t tell me to tap it and listen to the tone).

    I think it’s so annoying when people are convinced that you can tell ripeness by sound. I don’t know who thought of it, but it’s dumb.

    This looks tasty! I’ll probably add some liquor, though, because, ~yolo.~

    🙂 Have a good Tuesday!

    This is amazing! I hate being tricked by not-perfect watermelon. And non chocolate chip cookies!

    I’m glad that failure to pick the right melon lead to this though! I’ve never really tried melon but I love the colour (:

    I was going to ask about the meaty paw too, but Ryan beat me to it.

    I hear there’s an app you can use to decode that elusive watermelon tap-for-ripeness scale!

    Haha the cookie thing is SO true- nothing is better than a chocolate chip cookie! Boo raisins. This drink looks delicious and would be nice with a dash of vodka in it too I imagine 😉

    I love the “don’t tell me to tap it and listen to the tone” comment! Seriously, who thought that up? Even if I could balance a huge watermelon in one hand and knock on it with the other, there has got to be a better way. I already have some chopped up watermelon in my freezer and this looks like the perfect recipe to use for it. Thanks!!
