Watermelon Frosty

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.

(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!!

    lol I haven’t worn white pants all year this year – something about toddler grabby hands and whit pants doesn’t go together.
    ps- did you add vodka? looks like this would go well with some vodka or gin.
