Watermelon Strawberry Summer Slushies

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m sharing a refreshingly delicious  recipe with you- Watermelon Strawberry Summer Slushies! In the summertime, Slushies and so called “Frozen Smoothies” are sold almost everywhere. Contrary to health claims, these treats are filled with artificial colors, flavors, and dyes (all of which cause negative side effects). 

So, I created this healthy (yet delectable!) treat, which my brother and I both love! We make these drinks for dessert on a hot day, but they could easily be a healthy snack or part of a meal. And, for a tropical twist, add in a few tablespoons of freshly squeezed lime juice! You could also freeze the blended Slushies in Popsicle molds for something extra awesome.

I hope this treat helps you beat the heat (if it’s as hot near you as it is near me!) and enjoy! Please subscribe to emails from The Mini Foodie for weekly updates with new posts and recipes, and enjoy! 😉
