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.

Watermelon. It’s delicious in so many ways from salads to just enjoying chilled watermelon sticks in the hottest summer temps but today, we’re making a frosty.

Ala Wendy’s but make it summer instead of chocolate.

Watermelon frosty

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

I hope you’re BBQ-ing, 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 Wendy’s frosty gone fruity even has the 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 those one last time.

More Summer Drinks To Try:

How about a watermelon margarita shooter for the adults or a refreshing cantaloupe lime agua fresca if you’re not feeling the alcohol?

Wow, I didn't expect this to be so good. The banana gives it creaminess and sweetness without it tasting like banana. My toddler really loved this too. It's good to have sugar-free drink recipes like this.

[…] 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. […]
