INGREDIENTS USED IN WATERMELON SLUSH
The main ingredient in this slush is watermelon. You can add strawberries also with it.
I have added 1 tablespoon of lemon juice because I don’t like my slush to be very tart and this is the right quantity for me. You can use normal lemons or Italian lemons whatever you prefer. I am using normal lemon juice here!
I have used honey in this slush as a sweetener. You can also use caster sugar or maple syrup in it.

TIPS TO MAKE WATERMELON SLUSH
This watermelon slush recipe is a great basic recipe that you can customize in so many ways. Here are a few of my favorite:
- Make it sweeter by adding a simple homemade syrup. Simply, combine equal parts of granulated sugar and water in a pot. Simmer for a few seconds until dissolved. Let it cool and add it to your watermelon slushie to taste.
- Instead of water, use coconut water.
- Rather than lime juice, use lemon juice.
- Add strawberries
- Add vodka, rosé wine, or similar
- ½ Watermelon
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 10 mint leaves
- 2 cups ice
- ½ cup salt
- Cut half a watermelon into cubes and blend them with mint leaves, honey and lemon juice.
- Strain the juice to get rid of the seeds and fibre.
- Transfer the juice into a zip lock pouch, release the extra air and seal completely.
- Now, carefully place this pouch in another zip lock pouch, preferably bigger than the juice one.
- Add ice and salt to the second zip lock pouch, seal it and then shake vigorously for about 5 mins until the juice freezes.
- Transfer this slushie into your favourite glass or bowl and serve immediately.
