Watermelon Slushee

It is the wrong season for a watermelon slushee, isn’t it?  No matter, I made one anyway because I had a watermelon sitting on my counter, begging to be enjoyed.

If, for some reason, this is not sweet enough for you, go ahead and add a date to the mix, but I thought this was plenty sweet—actually, too sweet!  I think I’ve been drinking too many green smoothies latelySmile

Ingredients:

1 small (such as pureheart) watermelon

2-3 cups ice (judge by the size of your melon!)

juice from half a lemon or lime

a few mint leaves plus more to garnish (optional)

Method:

Add watermelon to blender first, then add ice and other ingredients.  Blend a few seconds until smooth.  Enjoy!
