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.
- Add some raspberries or other red berries.
- A dash of passion fruit concentrate adds a little sourness for a fuller taste.
- Did you know that watermelon and vanilla are kind of best friends? Add some fresh vsanilla pod pulp or liquid vanilla essence.
- For grown ups: Here you find a recipe for an alcoholic watermelon slushy.
