Coconut Watermelon Slushies
Here in my neck of the woods, summer is making an early appearance. I enjoyed basking in the sun (with plenty of SPF on of course) and soaking in the jacuzzi yesterday. I enjoyed my superfoods shake to cool me off. This got me on the hunt for other poolside beverages. When I saw coconut in the title of this slushy, you KNOW I had to stop and check it out! With watermelon season coming up, this is the perfect drink to enjoy to cool both you and the kids down. You may want to add a splash of rum to yours for an adult treat. ?
- 2 heaping cups of watermelon, frozen in chunks
- 3/4 cups light coconut milk
- 1 handful of fresh mint leaves
- Rum (optional but great for when you want an adult beverage)
Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender until it has reached a "slushie" consistency. You may need to add more/less coconut milk depending on how juicy your watermelon is. If you're in the mood for an adult beverage add in the rum. It's delicious either way. Enjoy!
