Raspberry watermelon slush recipe


Here's a fast, easy and refreshing summer dessert recipe for two.  It simply doesn't get much easier than that.  Add more of the lemon-lime or lemonade, and it transforms into a delicious drink.

And don't miss my latest giveaway: the 50th anniversary edition of The I Hate to Cook Book. 




Raspberry Watermelon Slush
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 cup watermelon, cubed, frozen
1 cup carbonated lemon-lime beverage
2 teaspoons sugar

Whirl all ingredients in your blender until slushy.
Serves 2

  1. Wonderful! I'm loving that Watermelons are local here (now that we're in Florida) this time of year. Thanks for the link to cooking for two" blog. My kids are middle-aged now (yikes) but if I don't really think about it, it is still more natureal to cook enough for an army when it's just us.

  7. Love the watermelon. We grow watermelon in Mexico, so I'm always interested in different watermelon recipes.
    The watermelon ad with the salt is interesting. I love salt with my watermelon and from what I understand this is very "southern".
    Nice posting!

  11. Oh man - I looked at frozen raspberries when I was at Trader Joe's today and I didn't buy them. I did buy watermelon though. If only I'd known you'd be posting this delightful recipe. Rats! But thanks for the recipe!
