Introduction: Zesty Watermelon Slush

My family had lost it's love for watermelon. It is not that we wouldn't eat it but we just never seemed to want to finish it off. Then I discovered the zesty watermelon slush. Now I can freeze what we won't eat and it won't go bad. It is good for spreading the watermelon love.

Step 1: Ingredients

You will need a blender, watermelon, lemon, and maple syrup or some other sweetener.

Step 2: Cut Up Your Watermelon

Slice the watermelon and then cut it up into chunks and put in a sealable bowl or plastic bag.

Step 3: Freeze the Watermelon

I let this one freeze for a couple of weeks but it may be as little as a few hours.

Step 4: Zest

The first time I made this I zested the whole lemon but it was a little too much for the kids. This time I used half.

Step 5: Sweeten

One tablespoon of maple syrup was just about right for half a blender of watermelon. Sugar or honey or something else would work too.

Step 6: Add Watermelon and Blend

It might be a good idea to let the watermelon thaw a little. I had to blend longer than usual because it was so frozen. Adding a little water helps too.

Step 7: Enjoy

You decide how chuncky or slushy you want it by how little or much water you add. Either way I hope this recipe helps you spread the watermelon love.
