You will need:
2 C. frozen watermelon (we always buy an extra melon when they are on sale and cut it up and freeze the chunks).
3/4 C. fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 C. coconut water (or plain water or juice)
1-2 sprigs fresh mint (optional)
juice of 1/2 a lime
Sugar, to taste (if you have a sweet watermelon, you shouldn't need any sugar)
Place the ingredients in a blender and blend on high until desired consistency. Add more coconut water if your mixture is too thick. Pour in a glass, add a sprig of mint and enjoy!
-Kids love these because it is like a slurpee, only without all the artificial colors and flavorings or the mountain of sugar!
-Substitute your favorite fresh or frozen fruits for the blueberries.
-For a grown up treat, you could add a splash of rum and it would be mojito style!

P.S. We discovered this tastes best when sitting on a hammock in the shade!
