I eat tons of fruit year round, but eating fruit in the summer is the best. There’s nothing I want more when I come back from a run in the heat than something sweet, cool, and refreshing.
Enter: Watermelon Lime Slushy.
In case you don’t know, watermelon and lime are a match made in heaven. They were meant to be! It’s the perfect combination of delicious sweetness and just a little citrusy sour. This also might be the easiest recipe ever – but I seriously can’t wait to make it again.
After a run and bike ride last Sunday I was craving watermelon for breakfast. Luckily my family’s beach house is near by a little fruit and vegetable market / stand! I rode my bike over and came back with half a watermelon and a lime in my basket. This is why summer is the best.
This drink is best enjoyed floating in a giant donut tube of course.
