  • 1 cup melon cubed (honeydew or watermelon)
  • 1 tsp ginger ground
  • 2 tsp lime juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/8 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1 oz Malibu Rum (optional)
  • 1 oz pineapple juice (optional)
  • 1 cup water to freeze the melons


  • Add the watermelon to ice cube tray. I like to put 1 watermelon cube per slot
  • Use only 1 cup of water per tray
  • Leave it overnight, if possible or it will be ready in 2 hours.
  • In a smoothie blender, add all the ingredients
  • Blend using the pulse settings
  • When the ice has been crushed, transfer to a cup and serve.


If you don't have the time to freeze the watermelon or honeydew, use ice cubes in the slushie
You can omit the water altogether and just freeze the watermelon / honeydew by itself. It will work great
