Refreshing Low-Calorie Watermelon Slushie

The weather is getting warmer and a perfect time to enjoy a delicious watermelon slushie.



  When I think of summer I think of juicy watermelon. I just love eating watermelon as it is so refreshing on a hot day. I always buy the biggest watermelon at the store as it is such a good price. My family usually eats up all the watermelon quickly, but sometimes there are leftovers. I have discovered a perfect way to use up leftover watermelon I simply combine the watermelon in a blender with some ice and a zero calorie flavored water and I have a delicious low-calorie drink that is perfect for a hot day. I sometimes just buy watermelon so I can make this drink as it is that good. I love that this drink is low in calories and sugar-free but still full of flavor.



  My secret ingredient that makes this drink so delicious is a bottle of Blueberry Watermelon Cascade Ice. This naturally flavored zero-calorie drink is so delicious on its own but adds lots of flavor to my watermelon slushie. Not only is Cascade ice made with zero calories, but it also contains no sugar, sodium, caffeine, or gluten. The best part is that it comes in 20 delicious flavors so your taste buds will never be bored. These naturally flavored sparkling waters are great for hot summer days. Add fruit and ice to Cascade in the blender and you then have wonderful party drinks that are full of flavor. What flavor of Cascade ice will you make a refreshing summer drink with?

Here are some of my favorite flavors of Cascade ice. The Peach Mango has a delicious peach taste and the Coconut is great for low-calorie virgin pina colada. Just stick a some lemon slices in the Lemonade Cascade and you have a great lemonade.


                 Refreshing Low-Calorie Watermelon Slushie

                                              1 cup seedless watermelon chunks
                                              1/2 cup of ice cubes
                                              8 oz bottle of  Blueberry Watermelon Cascade Ice

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend to desired consistency. Pour in a glass, add a straw and enjoy.
