Delicious watermelon slushie made with just 4 ingredients: fresh watermelon, lime juice, mint leaves and dates. It’s a super refreshing and healthy drink.
2 pounds fresh watermelon (1 kg), cubed
The juice of 2 limes
2 Medjool dates
1 handful fresh mint leaves
Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a shallow tray and freeze for about 2 to 3 hours uncovered. Stir every hour until it gets a slushie consistency. Time may vary depending on your freezer or the tray you’re using. The thinner the tray, the quicker it will freeze into a slushie consistency.
Serve immediately or keep it in a sealed container in the fridge for 5 to 7 days. Let come back to slushie consistency at room temperature before serving.
Seedless watermelon works best for this recipe, but feel free to use any kind of watermelon and strain the mixture before freezing it.
Lemon juice can be used instead of lime juice.
Dates are optional and any other sweetener is okay.
