Watermelon Meyer Lemon Slushies



Let me start by saying that I rarely drink anything other than water and milk.

I know, so strange. But the reason is I’m just not a big fan of drinking my calories (I’d rather eat them).

These watermelon meyer lemon slushies are an exception.

They’re ice cold, refreshing, and bursting with watermelon flavor. How is that?

Well, you freeze the watermelon in cubes and blend them up, and they act as the ice cubes.

What that means is you’re not diluting any of the watermelon flavor with additional ice.

Here’s how to make it:

Watermelon Meyer Lemon Slushies

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups watermelon, diced and frozen for at least 2 hours
  • 2 tbsp simple syrup*
  • 1/4 cup Meyer lemon juice (or try lime if Meyer lemons are out of season, start with 2 tbsp)
  • fresh mint for garnish (it gives a slight aroma as you drink the slushie)
  • lemon slices for garnish

Directions:

  1. Place the watermelon, simple syrup, and Meyer lemon juice into a blender and pulse until blended and you get your desired consistency (I didn’t want chunks in mine, so I blended it pretty thoroughly).
  2. Pour in a glass and serve.
