Watermelon – the official summer fruit

I think watermelon just might be the official fruit of summer. You guys know I’m right.

There is no way you can look at, smell, or enjoy watermelon in any form without thinking about sunny afternoons at the beach or dinner picnics in the park until sunset.

So now that it is officially summer, I’m diving deep into all the watermelon creations I’ve been dreaming about during fall, winter, and spring. And that includes these mouthwatering watermelon mint slushies.

Brace yourselves, guys. Seriously. You’ve been warned. 

All of the ingredients needed to make the watermelon mint slushies presented on a big tray.

Why is watermelon so good?

There is a reason that watermelon is such a big part of summer celebrations, and it’s not just because it is in season during those scorching months.

If you haven’t noticed, summer gets a wee bit warm. And when it gets hot, your body needs extra water to keep you hydrated for all those outside summer shenanigans.

Lucky for you guys, watermelon is mostly water. 92% water, to be exact.

So of course watermelon is an awesome thing to be creating refreshing, summer slushies out of! Not only is it sweet and tasty as can be, but it actually is helping your body stay hydrated. And since mint and watermelon is a dynamite flavor combination, I just had to throw a few leaves of my favorite garden herb into the blender as well. And your watermelon mint slushies are ready!

As for the strawberries…I use just for good measure. Is there anything strawberries don’t make better?

A fancy blender to make slushies? No!

I’m going to tell you guys a secret. I don’t have a fancy blender. People are always asking me what I use when I post a smoothie recipe and the answer is my handy dandy Kitchen Aid Blender that cost under $100.

It treats me well and, while I dream of one day owning a Vitamix, my faithful ol’ blender does the trick every time. So don’t feel like you need to have the Cadillac of blenders in order to make and enjoy these watermelon mint slushies this summer.
