    Picture this: sitting on a balcony overlooking Dream Beach and the picturesque Pacific Ocean from the terrace of an amazing Balinese hotel. I can feel the breeze and see the waves crashing as we take a break from pedaling around the island of Nusa Lembongan on our bikes by sipping on delicious glasses of cold watermelon juice. Last summer I spent 2.5 weeks in Bali and the scene I just described really happen. Watermelon juice quickly became my drink of choice because it was so refreshing. When I got home, I knew I had to make it!


    Watermelon Slush
    Prep time: 
    Total time: 
    Serves: 2
    • ½ small seedless watermelon (or use seeded if your blender/Vitamix can handle the seeds), approx. 2 cups
    • 1 large lime
    • Ice
    1. Trim the rind off the watermelon. Rough chop. Put the watermelon in a blender or Vitamix
    2. Squeeze the juice of one lime into the blender.
    3. Add ~6 ice cubes*.
    4. Whiz until it has the consistency of a frozen margarita (sans alcohol so Paleo-friendly).
    5. Pour and garnish like a fancy chef or just put in a straw and enjoy.
    6. *This is dependent on the strength of your blender.
