Strawberry Watermelon Slushie

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my Disclosure and Privacy Policy.

It has been many months since I last purchased a large seedless watermelon. When I spotted one for just over $5, I couldn’t resist trying it. I always feel like I’m taking a chance this time of year to get a watermelon that just might taste like crunchy water. But now that I’ve learned a few tricks on the best way to pick out a watermelon, I feel more confident in finding a good one. This one did not disappoint. Wes really wanted to make a slushie with it so on Saturday morning I pulled out the already cubed fruit and we went to work making this Strawberry Watermelon Slushie for a refreshing watermelon drink. It was so good!

Blender drinks like slushies are a really fun recipe option for kids. It is really hard to mess up a drink and my kids have always loved getting creative with the ingredients.

We shared this big glass which actually has 1 1/2 servings. Wesley’s older brother Warren devoured the rest before it even had a chance to melt.

    Watermelons and strawberries are pretty cheap right now and this drink looks refreshing and a good one for the 4th of July! I need to make this for my family that is coming over.
