How To Make Watermelon Slushie At Home?

  1. Blend the ingredients

    Toss frozen watermelon cubes together with freshly squeezed lime juice, mint leaves, and maple syrup (if using) in a high-powered blender. Pulse until thick, slushy consistency forms (do not over-blend it).

  2. Serve and enjoy

    Divide it between 2 glasses. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, lime slices, or watermelon wedges. Enjoy immediately because it tends to separate as it sits (if that happens give it a little whirl with a straw or a spoon).

Can you freeze cubed watermelon?

Of course, all you need to do is cut the watermelon into cubes, arrange it on a sheet or pan covered with parchment paper or aluminum foil, and freeze for at least 2-3 hours. Once the pieces are frozen you can transfer them to ziplock freezer bags or an airtight container. If your melon isn’t seedless you can remove the seeds before freezing it. Frozen watermelon will last in the freezer for 3-4 months.

Can I make this drink ahead?

I don’t recommend you make it ahead since it will not retain its texture and flavor. It is always a good idea to have frozen watermelon cubes at hand so you can simply blend and enjoy them right away.

Is watermelon good for your body?

Watermelon fruit is incredibly nutritious. It’s fat-free, cholesterol-free, low in calories, rich in Vitamin C, and powerful antioxidants (especially lycopene). Moreover, it may improve your heart health, won’t spike your blood sugar, it’s easy to digest, and is surprisingly good for your skin. It’s a great addition to your clean eating diet.

Is it ok to eat watermelon everyday?

If you can find it, yes, it’s absolutely ok to eat it every day in reasonable proportions. Watermelon is seasonable fruit so it’s best to enjoy it daily while in season and grown locally. Although you can find it all year round in some supermarkets, it won’t taste the same having been kept in storage facilities for a longer period of time.

Does watermelon reduce belly fat?

Losing weight and having a flat belly isn’t about eating one specific “fat-burning” food. It’s about eating nutrient-dense, plant-based food and exercising regularly. But you can quickly shed belly fat if you snack on fresh watermelon instead of ice cream or potato chips. Due to its high water content, watermelon will keep you hydrated and help you feel full longer.

How long does frozen watermelon last?

Frozen watermelon chunks will last for 3-4 months.
