Watermelon slushie – refreshing and healthy summer drink

Watermelon is a true summer superfruit that has tons of health benefits and this slushie is a great way to keep kids and adults hydrated. This super fruit has a relatively high water content that helps to rehydrate during hot and humid summer days. It is also a great source of vitamins and antioxidants.

Watermelon slushie recipe variations

I kept my recipe simple and kid-friendly with just 2 ingredients. You could add a few mint sprigs for added flavour. I have added a dash of lime juice to enhance the taste and to add a bit of zing, do not add it if your kid doesn’t like that tangy and sweet taste. Make it more interesting by adding little sparkling water just before serving if your kids like fizzy drinks. You could add maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar or any healthy sweetener to increase sweetness.

Let’s see in detail how to make watermelon slushie;
