Watermelon Slush

Picture this: sitting on a balcony overlooking Dream Beach and the picturesque Pacific Ocean from the terrace of an amazing Balinese hotel. I can feel the breeze and see the waves crashing as we take a break from pedaling around the island of Nusa Lembongan on our bikes by sipping on delicious glasses of cold watermelon juice. Last summer I spent 2.5 weeks in Bali and the scene I just described really happen. Watermelon juice quickly became my drink of choice because it was so damn refreshing. When I got home, I knew I had to make it!

slush

Ingredients:

1/2 small seedless watermelon (or use seeded if your blender/Vitamix can handle the seeds), approx. 2 cups

1 large lime

Ice

Directions:

1. Trim the rind off the watermelon. Rough chop. Put the watermelon in a blender or Vitamix.

2. Squeeze the juice of one lime into the blender.

3. Add ~8-12 ice cubes*.

4. Whiz until it has the consistency of a frozen margarita (sans alcohol so Paleo-friendly).

5. Pour and garnish like a fancy chef or just put in a straw and enjoy.

Makes approx. 2 large servings.

*This is dependent on the strength of your blender. I’m a Vitamix snob now (haha) so I used ~12 cubes and let that sucker run.
