With the temperatures soaring (100°F/40°C, no less!) what I really need these days is something light and refeshing. I chopped up some watermelon and pulled out some strawberries from the freezer and this was ready in no time. The only thing that takes a wee bit of time is deseeding the watermelon.
I loved the flavours of strawberry, watermelon and lime combining together. Give it a shot, you’re going to love it too!
Watermelon Strawberry Slushie
3 cups watermelon, deseeded
1 cup strawberries
Juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp sugar (much depends on the natural sweetness of the fruit)
½ cup water
- Whiz together the watermelon and strawberry in a blender. Add the lime juice and sugar and water. Whiz again until the sugar is dissolved.
- Pour in a glass with ice. Drink up!
Variation: I like mine on the thicker side. If you want to thin it down, simply add half a glass of water to it. Also check if it’s still sweet enough for you.
