Watermelon Slush - You won't believe that this comes together in just 5 minutes with only 3 ingredients. How easy is that?!

With Memorial Day coming up tomorrow, you know you can’t have a Memorial Day party without a refreshing pitcher of watermelon slush. Plus, this recipe comes together with just 3 ingredients, a blender and 5 minutes. That’s it!

Really, though, this comes together in literally 5 minutes. All you need to do is slice up your watermelon, throw it in a blender with some ice and sugar, and press start. Easy peasy.

You can even add a little bit of freshly squeezed lime juice for a bit of tanginess but I kept mine nice and simple with a little bit of vodka. Hey, a little bit of vodka is always necessary, right?

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    It was really good. Really refreshing

  2. I love to use fresh mint with watermelon… also watermelon freezes well and then there is no need for ice!!  My favorite mo tail!

  3. I left the sugar out and it was delicious and refreshing!

  4. Holy s**t amazing best drink ever 

  5. Where did you get the glasses you served it in?

  6. add coconut rum.

    • Used coconut rum in these at a BBQ today and it was perfect! It compliments the watermelon very nicely. Decided I will throw in some mint or basil next time. 

  7. I absolutely love this recipe. If you want to cut out the added sugar, just add some strawberries for an extra kick of sweet

  8. Even better with a little simple syrup, lemon juice, a bunch of mint and a splash of Amaretto.

  9. This is the basic recipe I use for watermelon (or cantaloupe) juice. Half water, half cut up melon and some sugar (to your taste, I love agave) and blend it up then sit in a mesh strainer. You’ll get some pulp in there but trust me it is delicious.

  10. Love your site.

  17. this easy and delicious , i love watermelon <3

  18. can you do this with cantelope

  19. The added sugar should really not be needed!

    • You can certainly omit the sugar to taste. I included the sugar in this recipe to give the option to add a little bit in case the watermelon is not too sweet/ripe.

  20. I’m soooo into watermelon and love all summer fruits! If you strain the blended mixture you’ll have what they call agua fresca and it’s absolutely light & refreshing! I add shots of vodka to mine too!

  21. I made this with honeydew and it was wonderful! Thank you!!

  22. This looks so refreshing! I can see myself drinking a lot of these this summer.

  23. That looks so refreshing! Perfect for a hot summer day…

  24. I seriously need some more creative recipes for watermelon other than just eating it.
    ‘Cause, well, that isn’t a recipe.
    So, I am ALL over this – perfect for the Florida heat! Pinned! 🙂

  25. Okay, this needs to be in my hand, STAT. What a great recipe!!

  29. Watermelon is definitely a warm weather fave – so refreshing! I made something similar last week and froze half the batch for popsicles. Yum!

  30. Remember when I was going to do that raspberry recipe and then you told me you were doing one, and then I turned it into a slushie recipe, and now you have one…girl we couldn’t have planned this if we tried 🙂 Same wavelength. Except you forgot to add booze to yours 🙂 Seriously though gorgeous images and I bet so so refreshing!

  31. Or even some tequila? This looks lovely!

  32. I’m so crazy about watermelon right now and this looks like pure perfection!
