Does anyone else wonder how fruit "flavors" were determined and standardized? For example, all cherry candy tastes the same (and you can recognize it) even though it tastes nothing like cherries. So today I'm going to show you how to make a watermelon slushee that tastes like actual watermelon! And it doesn't just taste like real watermelon, it IS real watermelon. So use up those end-of-season watermelons in this refreshing drink.
2 cups chopped watermelon
1/4-1/2 cup cold water
pinch of salt
Chop watermelon into cubes
Spread watermelon pieces onto a baking sheet and put into the freezer for at least 4 hours (or until hard)
In blender, mix approx 2 cups frozen watermelon, water (just enough to make it blend) and a pinch of salt (depending on sweetness of the watermelon)
