Watermelon & Lime Slush

Hot sunny days are a rare occasion here in England but when the sun does decide to show its face you might want to enjoy an ice cold drink (which this watermelon slush literally is). This is a drink for people who enjoy very sweet tastes and of course you have to like the taste of watermelon too! If you don’t I can almost guarantee you wont like this slush – but you can always make your own variation of it using fruits that you prefer, such as: blueberries, strawberries, grapes etc.

You don’t need many ingredients or equipment to make this Watermelon Slush:

  • Watermelon (…just incase the name of the drink wasn’t clear enough)
  • Half a lime
  • Table Spoon of honey / sugar
  • Blender
  • Tray  – suitable to go in the freezer
  • Fork (or anything else that you can use to scrape with)
  • Sieve
  1. Cut up some watermelon into chunks (making sure you cut off the skin around the slices)
  2. Remove the pips if you wish (or you can drain them out later but they make get crushed during the blending)
  3. Place the watermelon in to the blender and blend
  4. Squeeze the juice from 1/2 of a lime in to the blender
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of honey or sugar for extra sweetness
  6. Blend until the mixture is smooth
  7. Drain the mixture using a sieve in to a tray – or you could drain it into a jug and then pour it into the tray, whichever is easiest
  8. place the tray in the freezer for about 2 hours or until completely frozen
  9. Remove the tray and using a fork scrape the ice to create watermelon shavings
  10. Place the shavings in a cup / bowl and viola! Watermelon & Lime Slush


Ps: how cute is this watermelon cup from Primark for only £3?!

Pps: the reason I haven’t posted in a while is because I’ve been so busy with exams but that’s almost over so expect plenty new posts soon!
