My recipe for Watermelon Slush is very simple and straight forward. Its a just 2 ingredient recipe, one of which is of course Watermelon.

Give this refreshing Watermelon Slush to your darlings after they come back from school and they will be immediately get charged and rejuvenated. And the best part is that they can have as much as they want.

I happened to make this Watermelon Slush accidentally many years back. Shall I tell you how? Remember, how we used to spend our summer holidays? No school homework, no summer camps, no extra classes. At the most some simple homework like English/Hindi writings. Holidays were holidays in the real sense and were total fun. They were spent by visiting Nani’s house or Bua’s place along with a lot of pampering by them. To a certain extent, this thing continued with my sons also. My brother in law’s son, Pranay, who is of the same age as my elder son Shivang, get along very well and thus used to spend at least half the holidays together, either at our place or theirs.

Whenever Pranay and his sister came to our place it was no less than a festival. Continous fun n frolic, giggling and laughter round the clock, eating everything except the normal food (Dal, rice, chapati). Those days were great. Now, everyone is busy, kids are no longer kids now and are busy in their jobs/higher studies.

Oh! I think I swayed totally by getting nostalgic. Anyways, so one such hot summery day, when Pranay had to come to our place, I took out watermelon juice and kept it in the freezer for quick cooling. And, I forgot! When kids asked for something to drink then I rushed to the freezer and it was half frozen by that time. I quickly tried to break the ice crystals with fork and served that half frozen half liquidy slush to them. And it was a HIT! They demanded more of it and since then it has become a regular at out place during summers.

Watermelon itself is refreshing and when you have it in the semi-frozen state then its taste is just unparalleled. I think with such lovely natural drinks around, do we really need mocktails?

Lets see how to make this Watermelon Slush.

Detailed Method Of Making Watermelon Slush With Pics

  • Remove the rind and roughly chop watermelon.
  • Put the chopped pieces in the blender and run it for few seconds till it gets pureed fully. No, no need to take out the seeds. Even if the seeds get crushed then also no problem as unlike orange seeds these are not at all bitter. Also, do not add any water while blending. Watermelon has enough of it.
  • Strain this juice. Hardly will you get any pulp but its done to get rid of the seeds.
  • You can serve this juice also after adding little rock salt.
  • Put this juice in a shallow tray and off to the freezer.
  • After 4 to 5 hours (more or less, depending on the weather and your refrigerator) when it is set partially, meaning the top layer is set with liquid beneath it. Take it out, fluff with a fork. After doing so, you can again return it to the freezer and it will remain more or less like this. Just light fluffing will be good enough then.
  • Add rock salt and serve. It tastes like ”Chuski” and is really very refreshing.
  • Add salt only at the time of serving. Do not add it earlier else the taste will be spoiled. You may add finely chopped fresh mint also at the time of serving.

Variation

You can make it sweet also. If the watermelon is too sweet then do not add anything and just semi-freeze its juice. In case it’s not so sweet, then add little sugar powder while grinding only. Or you may add Rose syrup instead of sugar powder.
