Oh, summer. How I love you.

Except when you’re so hot and humid I break out in an insta-sweat as soon as I step outside. Southern living!

But it’s kind of unavoidable when you have a child who LOVES being outside. I’ve been making iced coffee for myself, but of course, my little one needs a special drink for himself.

Cue the 3-ingredient Watermelon Cucumber Slushie!

I quite enjoy this summer slushie, too. It’s naturally sweet, refreshing, cold, and yum.

Cut up and freeze a bunch of watermelon cubes in advance, and you can make this slushie super fast on the fly. (If you’re like me, I only cut up a half of a watermelon at a time, and freezing the other half is a great way to preserve that sweet treat and transform it into something delicious.)

In a world of convenience, it can be tough to eat healthy – but simple recipes like this make it almost effortless.

Pssst – did you notice those awesome glass straws?! They’re a great alternative to plastic straws, saving you money in the long run, and saving the earth and our ocean life from plastic waste. I found them on Amazon – and they even come with a special cleaning brush! LOVE. Even my toddler uses them (and hasn’t broken them! Score.)

Two glasses of watermelon lime slushies surrounded by watermelon slices. Perfect 4th of July drink.

  1. I have made something similar with coconut water, but it didn’t have cucumbers in in like your recipe does – which I LOVE! I wonder if I could premake and refrigerate this for my girls’ birthday parties. I think it would work… Thanks for sharing on Simply Natural Saturdays!
