Watermelon Sluch Recipe
4 cups frozen watermelon chunks
1 cup frozen strawberries
apple, white grape, or pineapple juice
The night before, cut a seedless watermelon into 2 inch chunks,
freeze in Ziploc bags. The strawberries can be fresh frozen or even the sliced
kind with sugar that you buy from the grocery store.
Place frozen watermelon
and strawberries in a blender or smoothie maker. Add the juice; enough to cover
the fruit. Blend. Can substitute other fruits for the strawberries, such as
peaches, blueberries, raspberries.
