How to make Slushy Watermelon Mint Lemonade?
Where can I get fresh mint? How do I grow mint?
To be honest I’ve never purchased mint before. I’m guessing in some areas you can buy it at the farmers market. I bet they sell it in the produce section at the grocery store too.
I bought a peppermint plant and a spearmint plant from the greenhouse years ago and planted them under my apple tree. Both are very hearty plants. They are perennials, so I don’t have to worry about replanting them every year. Mint plants grow about 2 feet tall and spread out quite a bit. They will take over your whole yard if you let them!
What else can I do with fresh mint?
I love adding a couple sprigs of mint to my water bottle in the summer. It gives my water a little flavor without adding calories. My kids thought it would make their water taste like toothpaste. It doesn’t taste like that at all.
I also garnish most of my desserts and drinks with fresh mint in the summer. Adding a little green to almost any dish makes it extra pretty!
How do I make lemonade slushy?
Turning lemonade into a slushy drink is easy! All you need to do is substitute ice for water. The more ice you use the thicker it will be!
For example if the recipe calls for 3 cups of water, I use half water half ice. If I want it even thicker I would use a third water and two thirds ice. Adjust the ice to water ratio until you get the consistency you like! Easy as that!
You may also use frozen fruit instead of ice in lemonade recipes. It gives an extra bit of flavor to the drink.
