This recipe was printed in the Vita-Mix Whole Foods cookbook. It is called a Watermelon Smoothie and I decided to change the name because it reminded me of those ice drinks you can get at a convenience store.
- 2 cups watermelon, cubed, seeded
- 4 -6 large strawberries, washed, hulled
- 1⁄2 cup guava juice
- 1 1⁄2-2 cups ice cubes
- Place ingredients in order listed in blender.
- Secure lid, flip the switch and quickly increase speed to high.
- Run until smooth and ice is crushed.
- Serve immediately.
Love this recipe idea! Unfortuantely, my watermelon was not the best tasting (winter in Michigan) so I know the slurpee wasn't as excellent as it would normally be - which is why I'm still rating it a 5. I cannot wait to try this during the summer when the watermelons are really ripe and juicy! I found the guava juice in a can in the Mexican foods aisle at the grocery store. Thank you Paula!
Yum!! This was so good I had to buy more watermelon! My kids loved this too! I made it with passion fruit juice also. Thanks for the recipe!
YUMMY! I made this today since it was 103 degrees and we needed a refreshing drink. I added frozen strawberries instead of fresh berries and ice. I also used OJ since I didn't have guava juice. I agree that this could be a tasty grown up drink with some vodka!
