Lime Watermelon Frosty

Lime Watermelon Frosty

This Lime Watermelon Frosty puts a lime green spin on one of my favorite sips of the summer! A few weeks ago I posted a recipe for my watermelon frosty – it became an instant hit among friends and I can’t help myself from craving them. The recipe includes loads of frozen fresh watermelon, maple syrup, a secret “creamy” ingredient and plenty of fresh, zesty lemon juice. But this time I made a few tweaks to the recipe to give it am amazing lime flavor that I might love even more than the original!..

Do you love watermelon? To my surprise, some people don’t. Actually my good friend and husband both confessed this to me just as I was blending up a tall blender batch of this recipe. Luckily they said that lime could sometimes seal the deal on watermelon for them. So instead of lemon, I tossed in a nice splash of lime juice and even lime zest. The frosty was a hit – even with the watermelon-haters. Success!

Creamy Frosty. The secret ingredient in this frosty is really the banana. You may not think it is a necessary ingredient, but it is. It adds just the right amount of creamy texture – with an added burst of tropical sweetness that makes this sip sing.

Get my recipe below – and watch me and my blogger friend Gena blend up a frosty in this video:

Lime Watermelon Frosty
serves 2-3

2 cups frozen watermelon
1 large ripe banana
2 Tbsp agave syrup (or maple syrup)
4 Tbsp lime juice (about 2 limes)
1/2 tsp lime zest
1/2 cup+ water as needed to get blender moving
optional: a few dashes of cayenne for a spicy sip
optional: a few ice cubes for an extra frosty sip – I like to use coconut water ice cubes

Blend. Serve!

Kids will love this cool pink frosty sip.
And mom and dad – you can add in a shot of tequila for a margarita!

First round frosty..

    I didn’t have frozen watermelon….so I used frozen peaches. Also not a fan of lime…so I used lemon. Sooooo good! This is a great recipe. I have been looking for an alternative to ice cream. This is it. thanks
