Gluten-Free Watermelon Slushy Recipe: Delicious and Healthy!

cubes of seedless watermelon

I’ve always been a sucker for a sale…

Recently, our grocery store had a coupon for a whole seedless watermelon at the low, low price of $3.99! Now realistically, how much watermelon can one family eat? But $3.99 was just too darn good a price to pass up. After purchasing my 14 pound watermelon (I made sure to get the biggest one possible), I knew I had to come up with some creative ways to ingest all of this melon before it became a hairy science project.

Eww.

In case you too were sucked in at the promise of slashed prices and freakishly large produce, I offer you my Watermelon Slushy recipe.

Feel good about drinking this beverage as Watermelon is the produce front runner for containing Lycopene, is healthy for your heart, and is an excellent source of Vitamins A, B6, and C.   Blueberries are ranked Number 1 in antioxidant benefits and contain a substantial amount of fiber along with Vitamins A, C, and E.

Depending on the day you are having, you can make this slushy “au natural” or go crazy and add some (gluten-free) potato vodka for a little kick. Um, I don’t think potato vodka has any nutritional value, but it sure tastes good in a slushy 🙂

Watermelon Slushy

In a blender, add the following:

2 cups of seedless watermelon cubes
2 cups ice cubes
1 cup blueberries

Puree until smooth
Garnish with mint leaves and small blueberries
