Melon Slurpee

Since the kids are off on a summer break, I have been busy making them happy with their favorite breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, and this one is just one more of their favorite "cool me off this summer" drinks. However keeping my kids in the house is not possible, so we do go out every chance we get, hitting pool and getting active in out local parks. When we get in, when we want something more refreshing, maybe better than ice-cream since it is low in calories and guilt free beverage, I am making all kinds of ice smoothies, and in this case Slurpee!
I don't have Slurpee machine, but I have to tell you that is much better than if you go and buy any of the ice smoothies or Slurpee's because I didn't use food coloring, it has less sugar, and most important it is natural and organic fruit!

Serves 4
Ingredients:

  • 2 slices of cold watermelon, cut into chunks
  • 3 slices of cantaloupe, cut into chunks
  • (you can use honey dew)
  • 1/2 Tbs. sugar
  • 2 cups of crushed ice, divide or each
Directions:

  1. In a food processor or blender put watermelon chunks with ice, and mix.
  2. Pour into glass and place in freezer.
  3. After that wash the food processor/blender and place cantaloupe chunks with 1/2 Tbs. sugar and ice.
  4. Mix it until it is well blended. 
  5. Pour on top of the watermelon which should get bit frozen and will hold a cantaloupe on top.

You can save yourself time and mix both fruit together!
Taste is sensational as well as the smell when two melons meet together in one cup, it is sweet but not to sweet, cold, refreshing and kids love it!!!



PS. You can make this adult version and add your favorite alcoholic drink!!!

Enjoy and Slurp your way this summer!!!!

  26. Sandra-Such a natural colorful, and refreshing slurpee for the kids, and the adults, as well. I would love to add some rum to it for Daiquiri...nice refreshing cocktail for a lazy summer afternoon:DDD

  27. Hi Sandra!! We JUST finished 1 watermelon and 1 cantaloupe and I had to say it was too much for our family. We usually wait until they are sweet then we have to eat quickly before they go bad. I wish I knew this recipe then we didn't have to eat them like we don't want to see again. LOL. Seriously, the drink is much easier to consume than eating them. I LOVE the this recipe and my kids will for sure. Next time I'm going to make this with half of the fruits and eat the rest. Happy ending!!!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe! Two thumbs up!

  28. Yum! It's a beautiful day here so this is just what I need to make! I might cheat though and use my ice cream maker to freeze it slightly...thanks so much! : )

  32. I am always up for a cool-off summer drink and this one looks fantastic! I'm sure it is a kid and adult pleaser alike :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. They look so pretty and refreshing!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Your FB photos had me drooling! Love this one. But I think I just might add a touch of rum to mine without telling the kids!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have watermelon, I have canteloupe, and I have something more adult on hand too! I've been using my melons in my green drinks, guess it's time for a change. Beautiful color.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Perfect for a hot summer day! I also love the colors and presentation.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Cantaloupe and watermelon in a glass? This is such a great slurpee combination for a hot day! The colors and flavors are amazing, and best of all, it's natural and organic. Your kid are very lucky tiny people to have a clever mom like you, Sandra!

    ReplyDelete
  38. This looks incredibly refreshing! I can't believe that spring is over and humidity is here already! I love the colors!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wow these sound amazing! Especially since the heat is rising up in the 90's here already! I'm thinking me and my hubby would have to make the 'adult version' of these by adding some Malibu Rum!! YUM

    ReplyDelete
  40. Sandra those are such beautiful photos ... and such a refreshing and healthy drink too!

    ReplyDelete
  41. So refreshing and watermelon is a favorite around here. Thanks for sharing. Beautiful pics.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love the name of this, but even more so, love that it is way better than a real slurpee! Real melon purees sound delicious in a slurpee instead of the usual overly sweet artificial syrup!

    ReplyDelete
  43. This looks so refreshing! I am going to give these a try this summer!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the fruit in this slurpee-I never have see one with this combination of flavors. Very refreshing-buzzed it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Mmmm - this is fabulous, Sandra!! Sounds and looks perfect :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is simple and delicious! Perfect for the summer. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is perfect for summer when you want something cold and refreshing but don't want ice cream. I'd actually choose this over ice cream any day. I'm adding this to my list of vacation recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  48. This looks amazingly refreshing! It is supposed to be 95 tomorrow and all I want to do is sit on a beach with one of those! Thanks for sharing Sandra!

    ReplyDelete
  49. This would be perfect right now, love the color :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh, what a delicious, refreshing drink! I love that it uses both watermelon and cantaloupe...yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  51. like the combination delicious drink

    ReplyDelete
  52. I think I have a new favorite summer drink :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Genius! Love the use of watermelon. I would like the adult version of this please.

    ReplyDelete
  54. See it's the P.S. part my 3 year old doesn't like well the kiddie version - soda/carbonation. I had forgotten that slurpees have carbonation in them. I bought one for my kids to share after having been AMAZING on an errand run one hot day last week. my 3year old got the first sip and promptly threw the drink to the floor shrieking at how horrible it was. So much for a reward for good behavior.

    ReplyDelete
  55. This looks heavenly! Love the colors too :) Wishing I had the ingredients to make this. I could totally go for one right now.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hi Sandra, This looks so refreshing and healthy. It is like a Mexican agua fresca plus the crushed ice. Mouthwatering :) Thanks for having participated in June's YBR:)
