Frozen Watermelon Slushies: Kid Approved

Do you ever wonder what to do with the other half of the giant watermelon you just bought?

Sometimes we get those huge melons and can't quite finish it up before it gets too ripe and mushy.  Here's my trick.

Slice it up like you would eat it and cut it into cubes.

Flip open a freezer bag and fill to the top with melon cubes.


We had frozen watermelon slushies for our morning fruit this week using leftover watermelon.

I let the bag sit on the counter for a few minutes.

I pried out about half of the watermelon and let it defrost a bit in my blender.

Add juice. I added apple and orange.

Give it a whirl till it's runny enough to pour. This was still too thick so I added orange juice.

I love my hand dandy dispensing blender. It's great for blended drinks.
Dispense into a cool glass.

Enjoy wholesome goodness that's sugar free and naturally good for you!
