Watermelon and Bell Pepper Slush


Light, refreshing, and super simple. It's naturally sweet and a perfect treat for a summer day. Actually, they sell the same exact thing in a tourist town in Florida for $5 a glass! Use sweet red, orange, or yellow bell peppers.

  • 3 cups cubed seeded watermelon

  • ½ red bell pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped

  • 1 sprig fresh mint


  1. Place the watermelon, red bell pepper, and ice in a blender, and blend until the ice is crushed and the drink is slushy. Pour into glasses, and garnish with fresh mint leaves. Can be stored in refrigerator up to 2 days.

Cook's Note:

Do not use green bell pepper, because it tends to be more bitter than the red or yellow peppers.
