Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Refreshing Watermelon Mint Ice

Refreshing Watermelon Mint Ice

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


The temperatures have really spiked this past week, and normally I'd be really happy about that, but I just found out that our central air isn't working. Shame on us for not checking on it before it got this hot out. Even the dogs are feeling it. Rocky is blowing stinky dog breath in my face right now trying to cool down and extract a little revenge at the same time. It's going to be a few days before the repair man can come out, so we'll be heading into Memorial Day weekend trying our best to stay cool caveman style. Doors shut, blinds down, and sipping on lots and lots of fruity beverages to cool down and stay hydrated. My girls love those frozen icees from the convenience store during the summer, but I thought it would be fun to beat the heat yesterday by making our own fruity icees. This Watermelon Mint Ice really hit the spot on a hot spring day

Watermelon Slushie

Now, the girls don't like mint, so I ended up splitting the batch into one with mint and one without since I knew they'd complain about the mint addition in theirs. I, on the other hand, love a fruit and mint combination, so I left the recipe as is for my glass. Either way, this is truly a refreshing treat without the added sugar you get from convenience store slushies.

6 cups watermelon, seeded and cut into chunks
2 Tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon fresh mint, chopped

  1. That is entirely not enough of lemon juice I'd put a whole lemon in it and an orange too :) Watermelon makes a really nice juice when you have leftovers from it. But I must admit I don't do mint, I use it only to repel mosquitoes under my window :)

    1. There's not enough mint in the world to tame those pesky mosquitoes that invade my yard. We have to have it sprayed quarterly just to keep them at bay :(

  2. Hopefully that will help you cool down, damn those broken central air systems. Too funny the pup is getting payback.

    1. Thankfully it's a cheap fix. It's just the wait that sucks. And that bad doggy breath in the meantime ;)

  16. It always seems like it's at the most inconvenient time for anything big to break...holidays, weekends, or nights when no one is open to fix it. Even though my air conditioner works, I think I will join you. The drink sounds yummy.
