Watermelon Lime Slushies

It's been a hot summer, hasn't it? Well, these fruity drinks are guaranteed to cool you off! And they're so, so easy.

The next time you buy a watermelon for your family to enjoy, save some of it to make these refreshing slushies. My kids have told me that it's now required to make them every time we get a watermelon. You'll need about three cups of cubed watermelon for this recipe, but feel free to use more and increase the other ingredients to serve a crowd!

Here's what you need for 2-3 servings"

3 cups cubed watermelon, frozen
Zest and juice from one lime
*1 cup coconut milk (I used just a little more to thin ours out a little, just how we like them)
1 TBSP honey or agave nectar

Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth! See how simple that was?

The frozen watermelon gives this drink its slush, so plan ahead. The lime cuts the sweetness with just a hint of sour. It's an amazing combination!

*The coconut milk I'm referring to is NOT the canned kind! You want the coconut milk found in the dairy section.

    Delighted to meet you. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to dip into some serious goodness.
