Enjoy these easy, healthy, and delicious Watermelon and Mango Slushies when you are craving a fruity cold drink on a hot summer day.
Speaking of cravings...I have been craving fruit and fruit juice like crazy this pregnancy which might explain why I decided to make watermelon and mango slushies. Plus the boys are out of school for summer and I knew they would love these. Yeah! I am ready for summer too. No more early morning drop offs and after school pick ups. Time to relax, enjoy the warm weather, and sip some icy cold watermelon and mango slushies.
I only used two ingredients (besides ice) to make these delicious and refreshing slushies. I used one half of a chilled sugar baby watermelon and one mango. That's it. No added sugar or flavors. Of course the sweetness of your slushies will depend on the sweetness of your fruit. If you want to add sugar, stevia, or another sweetener go ahead. I served our smoothies without sugar since the fruit was already sweet enough and I don't generally add much sugar to our drinks.
So start summer off right (it is June after all), find a cool spot under a shade tree and sip some icy watermelon and mango slushies.
1/2 of a chilled seedless sugar baby watermelon
1 mango, peeled and chunked or 1/2 to 1 cup frozen mango
1. Cut the half watermelon in half again and scoop the watermelon pulp from each quarter into a blender pitcher.
2. Add the mango and a couple of big handfuls of ice and blend. You can add more ice to get the desired consistency.
Additional notes: Serve soon after blending so it stays icy and slushy. For a special touch, you can garnish with fresh mint.
