Watermelon Slushie

Coconut Milk Ice


  • Open the can of coconut milk and remove the top cream only to a blender or food processor. Reserve the liquid for another use (like a smoothie). To the blender, add the date syrup, if using, along with the lime juice, vanilla, and ice cubes. Quickly pulse until a slushie consistency forms. Remove to a small bowl, cover, and freeze while you prepare the watermelon slushie.
  • Rinse and dry the blender or food processor. Now add the frozen watermelon chunks and process until a slushie consistency forms.
  • Layer alternating layer of the coconut and watermelon slushie in 4 short serving glasses or bowls, as you wish.
  • Top with slivered almonds and a drizzle of date syrup.

Recipe Notes

*Simply chop and put in a glass tupperware or zip-top bag and freeze. 
**For a less sweet treat, you can omit, especially if you will drizzle sweetener on top.
