Strawberry Watermelon Slushie

I picked up some fresh fruit this week from a local farmer and started plotting the perfect way to use my watermelon right away! What I came up with did not leave my family disappointed! My husband and I love watermelon. My daughter is interested in it, but not sure if she is a fan yet. My son normally won't touch it.

I made this Strawberry Watermelon Slushie from 2 ingredients and it was an amazingly simple, sweet summer time treat! I am giving you 2 recipes to make it also, just in case you require instant gratification. 



Ingredients
3 cups of watermelon, cut into chunks 
10 fresh strawberries (stemmed)

Directions
Place your chunks of watermelon into the freezer for about 30 minutes.
Next place frozen chunks of watermelon and fresh strawberries into a blender on a medium to high setting, blend until smooth.

Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Do you make healthy slushies at home as a treat on a hot summer day? They make a wonderful alternative to the gas station varieties and this one is super easy to create.
