watermelon slushwatermelon slush – a great snack!

Watermelon slush (or slushie, if you prefer), is a refreshing after-school or after-work drink that is easy to make. Add a touch of ice cream (or yogurt) to give it a creamy flair. 

I wish I had thought about this when my kids were young. This is a snack I would have been serving, for sure. 

This snack is a great way to use up watermelon with a different flair. Serve it up in a clear glass and your kids will ask for more.
