What You Need To Make Watermelon Slushies:
- 4 cups frozen watermelon
- 1/2 cup lemonade
- a blender
First you will need to freeze your watermelon.
To make this a kid-friendly activity you can cut your watermelon in half and slice a small piece off of the rounded end so that it sits flat. Then your child can create watermelon pieces with a melon baller or spoon. (If your kid is anything like mine, there will be a lot of sampling, which means this activity counts as snack time too!)
Place the melon pieces on a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Now get them in the freezer.
Once your pieces are frozen you can store them in a freezer bag until you’re ready to make a slushy.
Now the fun part.
Place your lemonade and frozen watermelon pieces in the blender. Secure the lid and let your little one push the button. Blitz until smooth. Note: depending on the power of your blender you might need to wait until the watermelon thaws a bit. You can also add more lemonade to help it along.
Pour your slushies into cups, add straws, and slurp! Be careful you don’t get a brain freeze!
The next time you’re in the mood for a frozen treat, make these Watermelon Slushies, you and your kids will love them!
