It’s SO hot in Alabama this week with highs today in the 100′s. Since we have an abundance of watermelon in the refrigerator, my daughter, Leigh, thought she would try her hand at making a Watermelon Slushy. I was so impressed that I said, “Hold everything. Let me take a photo of this.” Here’s her recipe for Watermelon Slushy. I know you’ll enjoy it this Fourth of July week and throughout the summertime. It’s so fresh and flavorful, and a perfect recipe to beat the summer heat.
4 cups cubed watermelon
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
11/2 cups cubed ice
1. Combine all ingredients in an electric blender. Process until slushy. Freeze 5 minutes and serve immediately.

This could totally break the heat. Ugh. It's painful. I'm going to have to whip up a batch of these!
I'll also add lemon to my next watermelon slushy. Sounds like a great idea! The only thing is: it's so cold and rainy here that I feel more like drinking hot chocolate these days :-)
Perfect for those hot summer days that are starting over here.
Sounds so refreshing Alison - I've made something similar using lime and mint. Watermelon is the ultimate cooler when it's hot out.
I just chopped up a bunch of watermelon this evening - thanks for the great use for it, Leigh! :-)
I love slushy's especially those made with fresh fruit. I have some frozen watermelon puree in the freezer. I know what I am doing today!!
I could go for 1 or 6 of these right now.
This sounds so refreshing!!
we were thinking along the same lines today. I made a watermelon lemonade and then you, a watermelon slushy - love it!
Wow, Alison, this is really perfect for the weather we've had the past few days! 107 here yesterday. I think I'll need a whole pitcher of slushies for this heat!
Oh my. I need to make this immediately. Looks delish Alison.
you forgot the rum and the tropical ocean view that this would be perfect for!! silly girl :)
