HAPPY HOUR

Watermelon and Strawberry Slushie

April 19, 2009
Watermelon and Strawberry Slushie

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 and lime

Watermelon Strawberry Slushie
Serves: 2-3

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

  1. Whiz together the watermelon and strawberry in a blender. Add the lime juice and sugar and water. Whiz again until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. 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.

    I haven’t tried this out with strawberries, but with watermelon, yes.

    However, :P I hardly have fruits to do things like this! For instance, watermelon is eaten immediately and with tons of fun. Strawberries are used by A for his innumerable dessert expts!

    The pics are beautiful, PF!

    Plutosangel: No, I haven’t. :) I still have some left!

    A_and_N: I absolutely agree about the watermelon being eaten immediately. I had to tap a few hands, else I wouldn’t be left with any!

    I’m jealous of your warm weather, although that’s a little too warm! Still chilly in Chicago!!

    Where do you find strawberries girl? I haven’t seen any for at least two weeks now.

    Jenn: You shouldn’t be. I’d pick a cold weather any day!

    Simran: Oh I bought lots of them in Feb and then froze them. So every once in a while when I crave them, I just pull some out of the freezer. :D

    Sounds refreshing. I bet that lime makes all the difference.

    We made this tonight, and I tweaked it by adding two kiwis as well, it was fantastic thank you!
