Strawberry Watermelon Lemonade Slush

Because... This watermelon isn't going to eat itself.
In case you're new around here, let me get you up to speed.

I created an accidental series of watermelon recipes, because we bought what we thought to be a decent sized watermelon for four people that turned out to be able to feed a small multitude.

Did I also mention said watermelon had been forgotten in our garage refrigerator for about a week? So, we need to get rid of this thing rather quickly.


You may or may not yourself in the same predicament, but in case you are (and even if you're not)... You should also check out my Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie.

But since you came here for a Strawberry Watermelon Lemonade Slush recipe. Here it is.

  • 4-6 Cups Watermelon

  • 1/2 Cup Lemon Juice
