Watermelon Slush Tips
1. can i add other fruit?
Absolutely! Do you have orange and green melons? Strawberries? Add a cup of another fruit to your blender the same time you add the watermelon.
2. what can i add to make this drink a little thicker?
For more of a watermelon smoothie, add some vanilla greek yogurt for a creamy texture and thickness. You can also add more ice if your slush is a touch too watery.
3. how many watermelon slushes does this recipe make?
Our recipe is for one watermelon slush, it fits in a mason jar. If you want to make a larger batch, this recipe doubles great. You can always make your slushes a little smaller too so there is more to go around.
- 2 Cup Cubed Watermelon
- 3 Cups Ice Cubes
