Tropical Watermelon Slushy

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. With some chopped watermelon stored in the freezer, it can also be ready at a moment’s notice.

The all-natural sweetness is an added bonus. The vibrant red hue is rather pretty too.

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 – Karpouzis – is Greek for the word “watermelon!” 

How cool is that? 🍉

Two simple ingredients are all that's needed for this fruit-sweetened frozen treat that's guaranteed to refresh all summer long! 

For frozen treats: Freeze pureed watermelon in cups or popsicles molds – or in ice cube trays for use in summer drinks like lemonade.

One more idea: Simply cut watermelon into slices and remove the rind. Insert popsicle stick and freeze for a refreshing, healthy treat with lots of kid appeal!

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
  1. Place half of the watermelon in the blender with about 2 cups of the liquid and blend.
  2. Add the remaining watermelon and blend until smooth. Add the remaining 1/4 cup liquid to reach your preferred consistency.
  3. 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 🙂
