Ready Time

15 mins

Yields

5 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cubed seedless watermelon (about 1 small to medium-sized melon)
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Ice cubes (as needed)
  • Fresh mint leaves or lemon slices for garnish (optional)

Instructions

Add the cubed watermelon to a blender and blend until smooth. You might need to do this in batches depending on the size of your blender.

Strain the blended watermelon through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl, pressing on the solids to extract as much juice as possible.

Discard the solids. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Add the lemon juice mixture to the watermelon juice and stir to combine.

Add the water to the mixture and stir until well combined. Taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness and tartness to your liking.

Pour the mixture into glasses filled with ice cubes.

Blend the mixture in a blender until it’s slushy and frozen, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Serve immediately, garnished with fresh mint leaves or lemon slices if desired.

Repeat the blending process until all the mixture is used up, as you’ll likely need to blend in batches depending on the size of your blender.

Pour the slushie into glasses and serve immediately to your friends and family!

Notes

Use a high-powered blender to get the smoothest watermelon puree. If your blender struggles, you might need to blend in batches.

Make sure to strain the blended watermelon through a fine-mesh sieve to get rid of any remaining pulp or fibers.

Don’t skip whisking the lemon juice and sugar until the sugar is fully dissolved – it makes a big difference in the flavor! Taste and adjust the sweetness and tartness to your taste – you can always add more lemon or sugar, but it’s harder to take it away once it’s added. Blending in batches is key – you want to make sure everything is fully incorporated and slushy before serving.

If you’re making ahead of time, blend the mixture right before serving to get that perfect slushie texture.
