Having a slice of watermelon is so refreshing, especially in the summer, isn’t it? Fresh strawberries are another favorite summer fruit of mine. So it seemed like a great idea to whip up a strawberry-watermelon drink.
This Strawberry-Watermelon Slush is a mildly sweet, juicy blend of watermelon, strawberries, lime, honey, and ice. It’s not quite as thick as most slushes are, but that’s probably the name that describes it best. You can add more ice to make it a thicker slush. Or you can easily turn it into a smoothie by adding 1/2 cup of strawberry or vanilla yogurt and a small banana to the rest of the ingredients to make it creamier. It’s perfect for sipping on during a hot summer afternoon!
