Great after school snack for kiddos....and so much better than a Sonic slushy! I used regular lemonade mix, and they loved it. Read More

I only rated this three stars because it was too bland/simple. I had to add some frozen lime juice, crushed ice and Tequila! Awesome! Read More

OMGosh!!! this was the best summertime drink this season;-) I had soo much leftover watermelon from the 4th of July that I didn't want not one piece to go to waste!! Froze up a cup to a cup & a 1/4th in individual baggies and waited;-) Had to make my own drink mix with unsweetened drink mix and sugar and followed the recipe like stated. I ended up adding a TBSP more because I believe the pre-made stuff is more concentrated then mine...but however it took all of a couple of minutes to pull things to one stop and whip in a matter of seconds...TY TY TY this was the best now I can make it with a moments notice on the fly! YUM!!!!! Read More

Pretty tasty I would recommend freezing the watermelon for over 45 mins and adding ice as there wasn't much slush to it. Read More

I decided to try this when I saw it posted recently. I was surprised at how much water was in the drink. I just knew it would be completely thin even with the frozen fruit. The flavor isn't bad just a bit lemony. I make a similar drink with real watermelon strawberries and fresh lemon juice. It is as thick as a slurpy. I will have to post it some time. The flavor of this was decent though and I liked the calorie count. Just a bit too much water texture wise for my taste. Read More

Love it. I use lemon aid mix or sometimes a squeezed lemon and my frozen watermelon. I serve it to company and they are amazed with the taste and the idea of using frozen watermelon. Big hit!! Read More
