This Watermelon Slushie is made with frozen watermelon, coconut water and lime juice for a refreshing summer drink! You can turn this recipe into popsicles or a cocktail with coconut rum - super versatile and super delicious!
Chop a seedless watermelon into chunks and freeze.
Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
If freezing for 24 hours or longer, the watermelon will freeze into a block. Before moving on to the next step, take the watermelon out to defrost a bit and make it easier to break up into pieces.
Add the frozen watermelon, lime juice and coconut water to the food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
If the consistency is too thick, add water or more coconut water to help get the consistency you desire.
Garnish with mint and fresh lime and enjoy!
Depending on how frozen the watermelon is will determine the consistency of the slushie. If the watermelon is frozen solid it will be more of a scoopable texture. If the watermelon has only been frozen for around 6-8 hours it'll be thinner and a consistency you can slurp with a straw.
If you're looking for sturdy reusable straws I highly recommend these straws!
If frozen solid, you may need more liquid like water or coconut water to help thin it out. Letting the watermelon defrost before blending will help as well.
Try swapping the lime juice for lemon juice or grapefruit juice
Try swapping the coconut water for another tropical fruit like mango or pineapple juice.
Made it a cocktail by adding a shot of coconut rum.
