Author's Notes

This recipe is an excellent way to savor the goodness of watermelon and strawberries during the peak of summer and enjoy a refreshing drink anytime throughout the year. By using frozen watermelon and strawberries, you can preserve their delicious flavors and enjoy them whenever you want.

Adding watermelon rind to this recipe is a smart choice. Watermelon rinds contain a beneficial compound known as citrulline, which possesses antioxidant properties and can enhance circulation, lower blood pressure, and strengthen the immune system. Incorporating watermelon rind into your slushie is a tasty way to reap these health benefits.
