Two simple ingredients are all that’s needed for this fruit-sweetened frozen treat. And whether you call it a slushy, Slurpee, Slush Puppie, ICEE, or slosh, it’s sure to refresh all summer long!
My family loves slushies!
A make-at-home version is tasty and easy, and with some chopped watermelon stored in the freezer, can be ready at a moment’s notice. The all-natural sweetness is an added bonus.
As an aside, the watermelon tea towel in the corner of the top photo was given to me by my childhood friend, Kathy, at my bridal shower 19 years ago. It is well worn, and I now use it sparingly to “save” it.
Kathy’s family had an extensive watermelon collection and, to this day, I associate all things watermelon with Kathy. Her family is from Greece, and their last name is Greek for the word “watermelon!”
How cool is that?
Tropical Watermelon Slushy
I like these slushies with the flavor of coconut water. My kids prefer pineapple or white grape juice. Choose what sounds appealing to you. For an adult version, a little Malibu rum or vodka is a fun twist.
- 4 cups cubed watermelon, frozen
- 2 1/4 cups coconut water, pineapple juice or white grape juice
Place half of the watermelon in the blender with about 2 cups of the liquid and blend.
Add the remaining watermelon and blend until smooth. Add the remaining 1/4 cup liquid to reach your preferred consistency.
Pour into glasses and enjoy!

How can you say no to a slushy? Now I don’t have to when the kids ask. Watermelon, berries, mango… I may need to make room in the freezer 🙂
It’s a no-sugar slushy we can feel good about!
