How to recognise a good watermelon?

Use only really ripe watermelons for our watermolonene slushy recipe. This is how you recognise a good watermelon when you buy it: Ripe, good fruits sound dull and have a mellow sound when you knock on them.

Immature fruits sound hollow and flat. An open watermelon is poor if the pulp is no longer luscious red, but rather pale and appears grey.

Ingredients
 

  • ½ cup ice cubes frozen
  • cups watermelon seedless and chopped in pieces
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp honey liquid
  • 4 leaves fresh mint
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions
 

  • Place ice cubes, chopped watermelon, honey, lime juice and salt into the blender bowl. Blend everything on low speed for around 40 seconds.
  • Now add the mint and blend another 10 seconds. Check the consistency. If as desired, pour into glasses, decorate with some more mint and enjoy!

Notes

Why adding salt? Salt lowers the melting temperature of ice. Adding a pinch of salt helps to keep the slushy cold for a longer time. Don’t worry: you won’t taste the salt.
