Refreshing Seasonal Slushies

Beautiful summer slushie made from honeydew and cucumber with a sprig of mint on top.

I have to admit, I love summer fruit. We are in peek season and I have been indulging in the sweet and fresh flavors that summer brings. 

Maryland has recently been experiencing some hot and humid days. With that, I have been craving anything cool and refreshing. Finding a healthy, unprocessed, and sweet treat can be difficult. 

No worries here, I headed off to the kitchen to do some experimenting. After lots of trail-and-errors, I came up with these delicious summer smoothies.

These slushies are so simple and easy. You can’t go wrong with honeydew, cucumber and mint. It’s so light and refreshing. Also, I recommend trying some some fresh mango and red pepper flakes (or hot sauce.) That one is Rich’s favorite! It has a sweet undertone with a little spicy bite. 

We got a little creative with flavors this time around but I’m certain you could come up with your own twist too. Maybe some blackberry and basil? Yum!

If you need an excuse to day drink I highly suggest adding some tequila!

We had some left over tequila after making our Watermelon and Basil Margarita’s so we added a little {or maybe more than a little} splash. Hey, it’s called adulting folks! 

The tequila turned these little treats into a great frozen summer cocktail.
