Summer Recipe: Watermelon Frosty

I cannot go another week without sharing one of our new favorite recipes with you.

Watermelon Frosty

I am literally begged for this cool summer treat nearly everyday.  It is a great way to use up a whole watermelon and right now, they are at their best season and price.

We have made a few variations of the recipe…

  • My husband burned up my blender, so I use a food processor instead.  It works fine.
  • If I have a large banana, I don’t use half because I think it gives it too much banana flavor.  One-third banana works just as well to help thicken it.
  • If your cut-up watermelon is stuck together straight from the freezer, microwave it for about 15 seconds to loosen it up a little without melting it.
  • I have not tried tequila in it, but if the kids keep nagging me about making it, I may have to add some. 🙂

      Heather,

      It is really good. You’ll have to let me know how you like it. I’d like to try it with other fruit as well. We just froze a bunch of peaches, cherries and blueberries. I would think the same recipe would work, but watermelon is a different consistency than the others. It might be a different texture/consistency with other fruits but the flavor should still be good. It’s hard to go wrong with fruity drinks in the summer.

    This looks awesome! I have a whole watermelon sitting on my counter so I would love to try this. We love smoothies for dinner in the summertime….in fact, I made them for dinner just last night, along with some popcorn. (It usually works best on days when we’ve had a big lunch 🙂

      Kristen,

      It is great! I don’t think there is anything better to do with part of a whole watermelon than this cool treat. I tried it with Sierra Mist the other day and it was fine, but I think I like it best just following the directions. I have not tried the adult “kicked-up” version.

      Enjoy!
