Lemonade Watermelon Slushie Recipe
Refreshing simple summer beverage with watermelon
Freezing watermelon is an awesome refreshing addition to your smoothies or making homemade popsicles or this tasty simple watermelon slushie recipe. This recipe works great if you purchase a large watermelon and worry you won’t be able to eat it all fresh. (It also works great if you have a not-so-tasty bland watermelon you are not enjoying as we’ve all had that experience!). Sometimes the best things in life really are simple.
