Just three simple ingredients are needed to make this refreshing Watermelon Lime Slushie Recipe. Slushies make for a tasty summer time treat, perfect for serving at bbqs or after a time in the hot sun.
Watermelon Key Lime Slushie
We have been on a bit of a slushie kick lately. The kiddos really enjoy them and so do I. Since making our Tropical Slushies and our Raspberry Lemonade Slushie, it seems as though slushies have become a staple in our diets, ha ha. I picked up a few watermelons to enjoy with for our grill-outs we had this past week and had some leftover watermelon.
I tossed the leftover watermelon in the freezer and planned to make my kids favorite 4 Ingredient Watermelon Sorbet. It is always a refreshing summertime treat for the kiddos. They were getting a bit impatient and requesting slushies after school so I just whipped these Watermelon Lime slushies in just a few minutes time.
The flavors in the slushie are similar to the sorbet but a bit more flavor can be found in the slushie. The addition of the key limes was just perfect.
These slushies are going to be added to the “Favorite Slushies” list. I am sure we will be making these for our summer bbqs this year. Since our family is a fan, I believe our friends and extended family will enjoy them as well. I can just whip up a few batches and set in the freezer beforehand.
I mentioned that these slushies only require just 3 simple ingredients. I added a fourth to mine, a dash of salt. I really liked the addition in mine. Feeel free to add just a bit of salt to your slushies too!
3 cup Watermelon cut in cubes.
6-8 Key Limes
1/4 cup Sugar
1 dash of Salt (optional)
2 cup Ice
Place watermelon in freezer for 1 hour.
Zest key limes and the cut and squeeze juice.
