Watermelon Slushy Bowls are so refreshing, and great for those hot days. Made with only 3 ingredients; watermelon, lime, and honey. These are so easy and fun to make, and the kids love them. The best thing is the kids end up with a fun activity, and a healthy yummy treat.
This episode of Watermelon Slushy Bowls is so cute. The kids started with half of a mini watermelon, and added the lady bugs to their bowls. They chose their stickers, decorations, and designed them how they wanted them to look. You can be really creative with these by using just about anything that sticks. How about some jewels, or glitter?
Also, we tested the taste with lemon and lime, and the winner was lime. When they finished, they went to sit outside and sip on their slushy bowls. They were so cute to watch!!

CAN YOU FREEZE WATERMELON WHOLE?
Yes, you can freeze a watermelon whole, but it may be very difficult to cut. I would suggest cutting it into smaller pieces to freeze.
For this recipe, cut the watermelon from the rind and then cut into small chunks. Place the chunks into a freezer bag, and freeze until watermelon is frozen solid.
If you won’t be blending the watermelon for the Watermelon Slushy Bowl recipe, then it’s best to eat it while it’s still frozen. It will start to get mushy as it thaws out.
WHY WATERMELON IS THE BEST FRUIT FOR KIDS?
Watermelon is a delicious fruit that is very good for your health. It has a high water content and also delivers many other important nutrients.
It’s a great fruit to eat, especially during the summer due to its high water content.
Let’s look at some of the many health benefits for the kids:
- Vitamin A: Good for eyes and skin.
- Vitamin B1: Helps the body to use food for energy.
- Vitamin B6: Helps fight infections.
- Vitamin C: Strengthens the immune system, to help keep your child from getting sick.
- Lycopene: An antioxidant that helps maintain a healthy heart, and bones.
We’re lucky in California to have our watermelon season last from June-September.
They kept tasting, and tasting them, and for good reason. Then added the lime and honey for flavor, but really the watermelon tastes so delicious on its own. No need for extra ingredients.
Keep them busy and having fun making this refreshing summer treat. Please leave us a comment below if you make it.
