Watermelon Lime Slushie

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

This watermelon lime slushie is an extremely refreshing drink with watermelon, lime, strawberries and coconut water. Summer in a cup.

If you live anywhere in the northeast, you’d have wanted this in your hand over the last 2 days. My car said 102 the entire 2 hour drive from Connecticut to New York yesterday. 1-0-flippin’-2.

I’m not one to complain about heat usually. My favorite part about summer is stepping out of an over air-conditioned store into that blast of hot air. I dream of that feeling when I’m wrapped in fleece blankets, fuzzy socks and oversized sweat pants in January. I’d rather be sweating bullets than freezing cold any day. But yesterday, it was literally hard to breathe. My sunglasses fogged up when I opened the car door. I’d equate it to that suffocating feeling you get when you step into a sauna and force yourself to stay in there for at least 5 minutes because gosh darnit, it must be good for you! Sometimes I personify my car and actually feel bad for it in extreme conditions. Yesterday, I watched the temperature gauge like a hawk fully expecting it to just shoot over to the H at any moment and give up. Any normal person would’ve in those conditions. Poor thing had to blast the A/C in traffic for half the trip and then speed along at 75 for the rest of it. That’s like 45 minutes of HIIT followed by a marathon in 102 degree weather.

Ok, this is getting weird. I’ll stop.

I’ve decided 12 pound watermelons are a good thing. Mainly because I don’t want to go another day without this drink in my hand.

Watermelon, lime, strawberries, coconut water. Can you say summer in a glass?

It’s the most refreshing thing my lips have ever tasted and it makes 102 degree days seem like a breezy walk in the park.

On another subject. Have just started making smoothies. Used frozen mixed berries. It was delicious. Only problem, the seeds! I tried straining the drink but that didn't work. I thought the Nutribullet would take care of seeds. Could you give me some ideas on how to use berries without having a seed spitting contest each time. Love your recipes and your blogs.

Yeah! I'm so excited to have woken up to your Drinks for 4th of July round-up at the top of my inbox this morning! I'm going to whip some of these up for the kiddos after the bike parade this morning -- and add a little splash of rum for mommy while I'm out in the garden. Cheers and Happy 4th!

This looks really good with the watermelon-strawberry-lime-combo! For the last few months I've been freezing coconut water into ice cubes and having it handy to throw in smoothies. I think it would be good here instead of the ice, since I love smoothies that are so cold they are halfway to a sorbet. Will have to try it and get back to you-- as soon as we get some hot weather, that is. Unlike you and everyone else we are still rooting for the sun to appear and stay here in the Pacific NW.
