Watermelon Slush

Crispy Peanut Butter Cup Balls
Patriotic Marshmallow Pops for the 4th of July!

With temperatures rising to the triple digits here in the heart of Texas, we are looking for any way we can find to stay cool. Watermelon just shouts summer to me, and making an icy cold watermelon slush is a yummy ticket to summer refreshment!

This week’s Cooking with Kids watermelon slush recipe requires a blender, so it does need to be made with adult supervision, but kids can do most of the work. Our seven year old liked being given free reign with a cutting board and knife! Never mind that the knife was a butter knife. He still felt like a big guy!

Watermelon Slush

Ingredients
4 cups seedless watermelon
4 cups crushed ice
3 tablespoons lime juice
(optional) 3 tablespoons sugar or agave

ingredients

Directions
Cut watermelon off the rind and in cubes. It’s okay if you have previously stained your hands purple doing a craft project, just make sure you have scrubbed them clean before working. 🙂

Measure store bought lime juice, or squeeze lime and measure fresh juice.

Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.

If you have any left over, put it in the freezer and scrape along the top with a spoon the next day to make watermelon shaved ice!

What a great idea, Patti! We usually have some watermelon left over after we slice it up so this is a perfect way to use it up in a yummy recipe!

It’s such a great summer treat! We had some with pizza and a movie for family night. Fun!
