Farm Fresh Fridays - Watermelon

Since Alix wanted to find something cool, but not ice cream, to cure her late night pregnancy craving I thought I would concoct some
 watermelon drinks. 
A watermelon slush and watermelon sherbet smoothie 

They are very good and quenched Alix's craving!
Watermelon Slush 
  • 4 cups watermelon strained 
  • 1-2 cups simple syrup 
  • 2 juiced limes 
  • 2 cups lemon-lime soda 
  • couple shakes of salt 
  • crushed ice - blend to fine powder
  1. cut and strain watermelon 
  2. juice limes
  3. add simple syrup 
  4. place in freezer until cold but not frozen 
  5. mix juice with fine ice 

Watermelon sherbet smoothie 
  • 2 cups watermelon strained 
  • 8 scoops sherbet, we used lemon and lime mixture 
  • 3 cups lemon lime soda or lime-aid 
  • 1 cup simple syrup

  1. Cut and strain watermelon 
  2. add simple syrup and place in freezer to chill 
  3. chill soda in freezer also until slushy 
  4. mix sherbet and soda together in blender
  5. add watermelon mixture and serve
