Watermelon is one of those foods I never appreciated. Every single time it was available at gatherings, I’d try it and like always spit it out. I just didn’t like it. That all changed last summer when I started my healthy lifestyle, got rid of junk and ate tons of fruits. Now, I want it – crave it.
Plain, mixed in a fruit bowl, as granita or as a delicious slushy drink to quench your thirst during these warmer months.
This strawberry watermelon slush recipe is full of good for you nutrition, sweetened naturally from the fruits with no added sugars. Since watermelon is the star in this recipe, no added liquid is needed since watermelon is very high in water content. I’m not sure how a regular blender will work with this, you definitely may need to add a bit more water to mix it, I used a high powered Vitamix 5200.
A refreshingly delicious low-fat healthy drink. So drink up all summer long!
