Lunchtime Hospitality: Watermelon Cucumber Slushie

Watermelon Cucumber Slushie

As soon as spring comes, I am constantly looking for refreshing and tasty beverages to drink during the day.  This slushie is not only thirst-quenching but it contains wonderful mixture of fruit, vegetable, and herb.  Highly satisfying!

This recipe is a non-alcoholic drink but could easily be made into a tasty cocktail by adding vodka –or up the lime quotient and add tequila to make a fun margarita!

Watermelon Cucumber Slushiefrom Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice

  • 1 small cucumber, peeled, seeds removed and cut into chunks
  • 5-6 cups seedless watermelon cubes
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 3 – 4 cups ice

Combine first 6 ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  (This can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two days until ready to use).

Add ice (and alcohol if desired) and blend until smooth and slushie.  Serve immediately in fun glassware!
