Over the past few weeks, the weather has been crazy in Atlanta. One day it will be 80 degrees and the next day will be in the 40s. Thankfully, the warm days have outweighed the cold ones and the nice weather has allowed us to sit outside and soak up the sun with a refreshing spring drink.
When it is nice outside, one of our favorite things to do is create a charcuterie board and hang out on our back patio. The other week, it was so warm out and we wanted something a little more refreshing than cheese, so we headed over to Publix to grab some ingredients.
Some of the in-season produce we found at the store was bell peppers, blueberries, sweet corn, and watermelon. Yum! We opted to choose some Fresh From Florida watermelon for the base of the recipe. We’ve talked in the past about why I love Fresh From Florida so much (see blog posts here, here, and here) and I still stand by that to this day. Florida farmers work hard year-round, making it easy for everyone to find and eat high-quality produce, year-round. Living so close to Florida really is a huge bonus because of this! In addition to the watermelon, we also found limes and mint, which could work together perfectly. So, we went with it and headed home to experiment and came up with the perfect spring drink: A Watermelon Slush.
I don’t think I’ve tried a more refreshing drink for the spring and summer months. It is cool, sweet (but not too sweet), it has a hint of tartness, and it just tastes really fresh. In addition to all of that, it is probably one of the easiest recipes we have ever made. You pretty much just throw everything into a blender and you are ready to go! Ready to try it yourself?! If so, here is the recipe:
6 cups of Fresh From Florida Watermelon
2 limes, juiced
10 mint leaves
6 cups of ice
- Cut up watermelon into bite-sized pieces, juice your limes, and rough chop your mint leaves.
- Throw everything into a blender
- Blend until smooth
I hope you all will try this recipe and love it just as much as I did!
