Healthy Frozen Watermelon Slushie

Prepare yourselves for the most amazing summer drink – the Watermelon Slushie!

I can’t even believe how delicious and hydrating this is. Perfect for a summer day but the dock, or even just in your backyard enjoying the sunshine.

This recipe is one of the easiest to make. Simply blend all the ingredients in a blender (preferrable a high-powered one), and ta-da!

You can add some maple syrup to taste after blending if you feel like it needs more sweetness, but I think that it was perfectly sweet enough as-is.

Choose your own adventure! You can even add a bit of booze for an adult-version. I added 1 oz of white rum or vodka.

Print Recipe
Serves: 2 to 3


  • 4 cups watermelon cubes, frozen
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint
  • zest of 1 lime (optional)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 3/4 cup sparkling water (soda water)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • 2 oz white rum or vodka (optional)

  • To serve:
  • sprakling water
  • lime wedges
  • sprigs of mint



Combine all of the ingredients in the blender and blend until slushy and smooth. Add more water as necessary if too thick. I had to push down the mixture a few times to help it blend. Adjust flavour to taste with more lime juice or maple syrup.


Pour into glasses (or scoop with a spoon like I did!). Top with more fizzy water and stir. Serve with lime and mint.
