Full Belly Sisters: Watermelon Cucumber Lemon Slushie

Watermelon Cucumber Lemon Slushie

It is crazy humid here in New York today. The kind of humid where you get out of a nice, cool, soapy shower and you instantly feel all sweaty and gross again. The kind of humid where you feel you need a machete to cut through the air. You've been there, you know what I'm talking about.

So, after walking a couple of miles round-trip to pick my son up from day camp, I needed some serious help to cool down. This slushie did the trick. My frozen watermelon chunks were from a melon that was too mediocre to eat on its own but was perfect for throwing in my Vitamix. Whenever I have fruit that's too bland or mushy or mealy, I just cut it up and freeze it. It can always be tossed in a smoothie and it'll taste just fine! Good for the grocery budget, too.

one serving
  • 1 cup cucumber chunks 
  • 1 1/2- 2 cups frozen watermelon chunks
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1/4-1/2 cup water kefir (or coconut water or any liquid you like)

Put all the ingredients in the blender and process until smooth. Add more liquid until you get the consistency you prefer. I like mine to be very icy and slushy, like a daiquiri. 

If you dig this, you should try my Watermelon Mint Slushie! You can also read more about some of the nutritional benefits, particularly for pregnant gals.

Stay hydrated, folks!

    Love that you added cucumber. I don't care for it plain, but mixed with drinks--so freakin' refreshing!

    Thanks! I like it any which way, but I definitely agree it makes drinks extra special :-)
