We've had a few hot days here lately in the pacific Northwest! My children and I created this super simple slushie recipe using fresh watermelon the other day. They wanted me to share the recipe with you so you could make it too! Once you make this version I hope you try it with other types of fresh fruit as well....it makes the perfect, refreshing summer afternoon treat.
This recipe would be suitable to enjoy during our Elimination Diet. If you haven't seen our new online program.....then hop on over to our website and check it out today. I created plenty of super satisfying, tasty recipes that are gluten, dairy, egg, corn, soy, nut, nightshade, yeast, and citrus-free that you will find in a 130-page full color downloadable book. Many of the recipes are grain-free, legume-free, and low-FODMAP as well.
Make sure you buy SEEDLESS watermelon when making this recipe. Try other types of melons such as honeydew, or other fruits such as peach, strawberry, apricot, or pitted fresh cherries!
4 cups chopped seedless watermelon
juice of 2 limes
2 to 3 teaspoons raw honey (optional)
small handful fresh mint (optional)
4 cups ice cubes
Place the chopped watermelon, lime juice, honey, and fresh mint into a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Add the ice cubes and blend again until smooth. Serve immediately!
Yield: about 4 servings
