Happy Friday, everyone! If you’re reading this right now, it means I’m off to the beach for the weekend with my husband and some of his family members. I will be enjoying a long weekend with them and I’m excited to unplug, relax, and do some beach reading. Today’s Coconut Watermelon Slushie is creamy, gluten free, and 100% vegan. I hope you make it and sip on it during your 4th of July BBQ’s! This slushie is naturally sweetened with Medjool Dates with no added sugars so go on and sip it from a large glass;it’s so refreshing!
To be honest with you, I was hoping this would be more of an ice cream texture, but I think because of the coconut milk/watermelon ratio, it turned out to be more of a slushie. No matter what you call it, the flavor is on point! Without further ado, lets get in to this deliciousness!
Coconut Watermelon Slushie (Serves 4)
- 2 Cups cubed watermelon
- 1 can Coconut Milk (unsweetened)
- Juice of 1/2 Lime
- 4 Pitted Medjool Dates
- 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
- Add watermelon and coconut milk in to blender. Blend a few seconds until watermelon breaks up.
- Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth
- Place in to jar and freeze 30 minutes or until mixture has frozen partially but is not completely frozen solid.
I hope you enjoy your 4th of July weekend and that it’s filled with delicious beverages, family time, and lots of time soaking up the sun. I’ll be unplugged for a few days but will be back for another post on Tuesday! Until then, happy blending, my friends!
