Two-Ingredient Watermelon Slushies

Jul 30, 2015

Nothing says summertime quite like watermelon!

Watermelon slushies are one of our favourite treats to whip up on a hot summer day. They're delicious, refreshing and contain only two ingredients: watermelon and lemonade.

What You’ll Need:

  • frozen watermelon cubes (see below for my method)
  • your favourite lemonade (we use a 100% pure juice option)
  • a blender


1. Simply cube up a seedless watermelon and allow the chunks to freeze overnight. I like to cube a whole watermelon at once, let the chunks freeze on parchment-lined baking sheets and then store them in freezer bags afterwards.

This leaves you with lots of frozen watermelon prepped and ready for whenever you need it.

2. Once you have frozen watermelon in the freezer, making the slushies really couldn’t be easier. Simply place some of your frozen watermelon cubes into your blender, add lemonade until the watermelon is nearly covered and blend until smooth.  That’s it—no recipe or exact measurements needed!

3. Pour into glasses, add some straws and serve immediately.  Enjoy!
