Watermelon Frosty!

I've been planning on making this Watermelon Frosty recipe for a while now. But it seemed every time we had fresh watermelon in the house it was gobbled up in just a few hours. Fresh, juicy watermelon has that instant gratification effect on people. Kinda like freshly baked bread, warm oven cookies, hot pizza or a bowl of cherries. It begs to be tasted. Now. But finally, I chopped up my seedless watermelon and tossed it into the freezer for a half day. And frosty bliss followed..

Hot Saturday. All day at the pool. Under the sun. The first tan lines of the season. Hot. Dry. Parched. Once we were settled in our snugglies at home I blended up these refreshing Watermelon Frosty bevies. Well actually, we decided to make ours margaritas. A splash of tequila leftover from Cinco de Mayo. Virgin or not, this easy recipe is a keeper! Perfect for Memorial Day weekend veggie BBQ's..
