Easy Watermelon slushie

My mom and I made watermelon slushies from fruit leftover from the Fourth of July. The slushies are great in hot weather.

G. and I drove to North Carolina to see my family over the Fourth of July holiday. We had a lot of relatives in town, so Mom bought watermelon. Then we had a lot of watermelon leftover. We used it to make slushies on a hot day.

Watermelon Slushie
2 pounds seedless watermelon, cut in cubes (that’s rind-on weight)
Juice of 1 lime
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon water
3 leaves fresh mint, chopped
1 tablespoon sugar

Line a baking sheet with parchment, wax paper or a silicone liner. Place the watermelon on the baking sheet, and place the sheet in the freezer for exactly 30 minutes.

Place all the ingredients in a food processor or ice-crushing blender and blend, scraping down the sides as needed, until no chunks are left. Easy slushie!
