A simple, refreshing watermelon frosty drink for summer.

Since it’s the unofficial last “summer” weekend, I figured we’d go out with the most quintessential summer fruit there is.

Watermelon.

Watermelon frosty

(oh, look…there I am in the spoon again)

I hope you’re barbequing, hanging out at the beach or chilling at a pool like the rest of the country, but I also hope you have a blender nearby.

This is like a Wendy’s frosty gone fruity. It’s even got that exact same consistency right smack in the middle of being too thick for a straw and too liquidy for a spoon so you either look like an emaciated fish trying to suck it up or a giant slob trying to shove it in your face.

I know you know what I’m talking about. Don’t front.

Just try not to get it all over your white pants you’re rocking out that one last time.

    YUM! I have been obsessed with making watermelon slushy drinks this summer. So much so that I have an unlimited supply of watermelon waiting for me in the freezer! I haven’t thought of adding a banana to make it creamy though! I love this, I will for sure try it this way this week.
    By the way, I made a drink recipe that included frozen watermelon and basil and those two go together beautifully!!

  1. […] 32. Watermelon Frosty Warning: This drink may cause brain freeze. It’s so good and so refreshingly cold (frozen watermelon chunks = brilliant) that you won’t be able to stop yourself from slurping it down at super speed. While the watermelon supplies a burst of juice, the creaminess of this frosty comes from heart-healthy bananas. The yellow fruit has been found to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, thanks to its fiber, potassium, and vitamins C and B6 content. […]
