- 2 cups pineapple chunks, chilled
- ½ cup cold sparkling water
- ½ cup fresh mint leaves, plus more for garnish
- ½ watermelon, cut into cubes and chilled
- ¼ cup lime juice
- lime wedges for garnish
- Puree pineapple, sparkling water, and mint in a blender; transfer mixture to a pitcher.
- Rinse blender pitcher. Blend watermelon and lime juice in blender until smooth.
- Pour watermelon juice into a glass. Spoon 3 tablespoons pineapple mixture onto watermelon juice. Garnish with mint leaves and lime slices.
Make sure to use seedless watermelon in this recipe. It's available in pink or yellow varieties. Add coconut cream or coconut milk to the pineapple mixture for a rich and creamier version. Spoon the watermelon juice into a freezer-safe container and top with the pineapple puree and freeze for 2 to 3 hours creating a slushy dessert version to eat with a spoon!

My two favorite summer 🍉 fruits 🍍 Together 🙌🏽 I used the mint in the watermelon section instead of the pineapple as I prefer those two flavors together and the pineapple on top. Super yummy 😋

Today was HOT! This slushy was everything! Definitely cooled me down for sure. My friend added vodka to it and yup it was a winner!
Shannon Whittier says:
So refreshing and perfect on a hot summer day. Made it with la croix and it was delicious!!!
Alyx Leigh says:
The most refreshing drink ever and it is sooooo easy! The kids can't get enough of this. I love it because they stopped asking for soda and beg for this slushy. I have taken to sneaking in veggies in and they have no idea. Thanks Mealthy for the recipe and getting more healthy foods into my kids' diet!!!
Tal Levitas says:
This was the perfect drink for a hot summer day. I didn't succeed in making it look like the video or still does, but even with it all mixed together, it was extremely delicious.
Steve Failows says:
delicious and refreshing slushy perfect for the dog days of summer - the mint is what really brings it all together. takes a bit of practice to nail the watermelon look in the video, but even "practice pours" are a total treat.
Randall Hauk says:
I love watermelon. I love mint. This was even more refreshing that I would have imagined, which was already pretty refreshing. Nice way to beat the heat in Seattle's extended summer!
Tarragon Boi says:
This recipe was so simple and I've been thinking about it for days. Getting the consistency JUST right is important. You want the watermelon slushie a little bit more on the liquidy side. Also, make sure you pour the pineapple, then the watermelon, because the watermelon slushie sinks to the bottom. If you do it the wrong way then it wont stay separated.
