Watermelon Lemon Drop Slushies

I love watermelon but sometimes my eyes are bigger than my stomach.

I recently bought a huge watermelon, but I didn’t realize exactly how huge until I was cleaning it.

It just kept going, and going, and going. It was multiplying on the cutting board, I swear.

But I wasn’t worried about what to do with it all because I can eat my weight in it, and I knew I’d freeze extra for slushies.

As a nice bonus, if you’re using frozen fruit in smoothies and slushies you don’t need to add ice which just waters them down.

The slushies can be made with our without alcohol, but it’s a holiday so I say go for it. Even if it’s not a holiday, I say go for it.

The lemon adds a bright tartness to the sweet watermelon and the slushies are incredibly refreshing. They go down fast, easy, and you’ll want a refill before you know it.

Sadly, I know this was probably the last watermelon of the season.

But it just made the slushies taste extra special.

Watermelon Lemon Drop Slushies

If you’ve ever bought too much watermelon, freeze extra for slushies. The slushies can be made with or without alcohol. Freeze the watermelon for 1 hour before blending it so you don’t need to add ice which would water down the slushies. The lemon adds a bright tartness to the sweet watermelon and the slushies are incredibly refreshing and go down fast and easy.

Ingredients:

4 cups diced watermelon, deseeded (freeze before blending for 1 hour)
2 shots lemon vodka (or your favorite flavored or unflavored vodka), optional
2 shots watermelon schnapps, optional
juice of 1 lemon, or to taste
sweetener, to taste (I recommend a liquid sweetener like agave, simple syrup, or a zero-calorie sweetener; granulated sugar may not dissolve entirely)

Directions:

  1. To the canister of a blender or food processor, add all ingredients and blend on high speed until smooth, about 1 minute.
  2. Divide mixture between two glasses and serve immediately. Extra slushie mixture can be kept in the freezer for up to 1 month by placing freezer-safe glasses inside a large ziplock bag to avoid freezer smells; allow to thaw for about 45 minutes before stirring and serving. If adding alcohol, recipe is intended for those for whom alcohol use is legal and appropriate. Always drink responsibly.
