cubed seedless watermelon
fresh lime juice
Substitute limeade concentrate, and add ginger ale or a citrus soda, to make it even more refreshing. I also froze watermelon chunks so did not need ice cubes, but did need the ginger ale to make it go through the blender. I also omitted the salt from the blender batch, and added it to taste to the finished drink. This is good!
I grew up making watermelon-lime slushies with frozen pieces of watermelon rather than bothering with ice. The flavor turns out better and stronger that way.
REFRESHING! I tripled the ice to make it more slushy and didn't add all the sugar at once, but to taste. I also stuck the leftovers in the freezer and let thaw for 10 minutes, then added a small amount of water and poured into a glass. Either way, I will be making this again when I have more watermelon than I know what to do with!
This is excellent with the changes I made. I used frozen strawberries instead of ice cubes. Also used 3 T. lime juice instead of 1/3 cup.
I used lemon juice, didn't have lme, omitted the salt and only measured the melon, but eyeballed everything else. Came out fantastic! So refreshing and delish. It'such a great and simple way to use up extra watermelon that is lying in the fridge! thanks for sharing your recipe!
This recipe is very refreshing.I did find that the sugar needed adjusting according to the sweetness of the melon. I added only half the sugar initially then adjusted to my own taste.
We had 3/4 of a smallish watermelon that was not getting eaten so I scooped all in melon out (probably around five cups' worth), and I added 12 ice cubes, the juice of half a lime, around 2 TBS sugar, and no salt. It was plenty sweet as the watermelon was really sweet. And half a lime was enough for us, any more would have been overpowering. Thanks for sharing, Olivia! I think I prefer drinking my watermelons!
This is pretty good. 1/3 cup of lime was a little too much so I would cut that back to maybe 1/4 cup. I also could have cut the amount of sugar due to the ripeness of the watermelon. My 3 boys really liked it and it was a great way to get a large amount of watermelon out of a crowded fridge, not to mention the fact that it's better for them to drink than kool-aid!!!
