Strawberry Watermelon Slushee (Dairy Free, Autoimmune Friendly)


Strawberry Watermelon Slushee // deliciousobsessions.com Follow Me on Pinterest

This strawberry watermelon slushee is another throwback to my childhood. Like I have mentioned so many times before, a lot of the recipes that I share on this site are from my childhood. My mother was such a fantastic cook and I owe my love of real food and cooking to her.

During the summer, this is one of my favorite drinks to make. It is cold and refreshing and really quenches your thirst. Plus, it’s a cinch to make, so you can stay hydrated and satisfied on the hottest summer days.

Pictures from Childhood and Strawberry Watermelon Slushees // deliciousobsessions.comWhen I was a kid, my mom would make this for us after we had been out horseback riding on a hot summer day. Every time I taste it as an adult, I am magically transported back to being a child. Nothing like fond memories to get you through from time to time!

Shout out to my friend Suzanne from Strands of My Life for shooting the photo for this recipe!

P.S. I always like to add a tablespoon or so of gelatin into my smoothies for added nutrition. If you want to learn more about gelatin and its benefits for our health, I highly recommend this book, The Gelatin Secret: The Surprising Superfood That Transforms Your Health and Beauty, from my affiliate partner, Sylvie McCracken. This book is packed with incredible information on how gelatin helps all aspects of our health and also features delicious recipes!

  1. I have not made this yet and I am totally regretting that I did not buy that watermelon that was on sale today. This looks totally amazing. After having a long day in the sun has made me crave this even more! I will have to try this soon!!!!

  2. Do you think regular water or water kefir would work too? I don’t have seltzer water but this sounds yummy! Not sure I have frozen strawberries either, so I will try either cherries or blueberries instead.

    • Katherine – Water kefir would be awesome! I have made slushees with WK before and they are tasty. Any fruit would work for something like this too. Enjoy! :)
