A slush is a partially frozen snow and semi frozen fruit according to my dictionary. It works perfect in the weight watchers world as a watermelon slush is the most sensible addition to your dessert craving. It is a tropical treat to go to when the sun is just about sucking the last bit of energy from us. It’s the best thing for a mom as its fuss free way to nutrition and ticks the boxes it can always be passed up to the picky eater as shaved ice treat.
To us the slush is the sneak up to the refrigerator at midnight kind of food. And what makes the best slush… watermelon.
As discussed in an earlier post , watermelon sherbet, watermelon helps in weight loss, fights fatigue, pain and more so keeps us hydrated.
The watermelon slush is perhaps the best way I can store up the giant watermelon through the week too.
How to store for longer?
The frozen watermelon can stay up to 3 months. So it’s insta energy right there in your refrigerator. Store up your slush as small cubes in a double zip lock. A few pretty cubes and a can of soda/lemonade will make a elegant dinner party mocktail. Can’t get any better??
Now for the slush don’t discard the white part of the rind. It’s perfectly edible. Just peel the skin. A quick rough chop a quick blend with few more ingredients and tuck into the freezer.
Ahhhh!!! the waiting time is all that bothers. Once frozen.. Serve it up.
You could however top it up with whipped cream oy coconut milk to make it more decadent.
