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.
