Do you know what day today is?? Yes it's Martha Stewart's birthday, but do you know what else today is? National Watermelon Day! What perfect timing, 110+ degree heat advisories this week have left me with little desire to cook or eat much of anything. A watermelon lemonade slushy on the other hand, sounds like just the thing to beat the summer heatwave. So pull out your blenders and whip up a batch of slushies!
Watermelon Lemonade Slushy
Serves about 6
4 cups watermelon, pureed and strained
4 cups ice cubes
2/3cup frozen lemonade concentrate
1 cup cold water
For an adult version: leave out the water and add 4oz. each of vodka and limoncello.
Puree watermelon in a blender. Strain through a mesh strainer. (You can skip this step if you want, but it will be harder to sip through a straw if it's not strained.)
In blender on medium speed, blend together watermelon, ice, lemonade concentrate, and water until ice breaks down. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
|Cheers Martha, but I'm celebrating watermelon today!|
