On a recent trip to Whole Foods, I purchased a bottle of Rose Water from the baking aisle. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I love the smell of roses. So imagine my delight when Ann of Sumptuous Spoonfuls shared her Watermelon and Rosewater Slushie for one of my Smoothie Tuesdays.
I was excited to make this beautiful drink. The recipe called for frozen watermelon. I had also just bought a watermelon so I was in luck. I just had to freeze it which I did and I made it the very next day. I have altered her original recipe slightly to suit my taste and how much I wanted to make.
Makes 2 servings (although I drank both of the servings)
1 cup watermelon, frozen
16 oz. of filtered water
1 tablesmooth of Rose Water (I used Silver Cloud Estates brand)
1 cup of ice
Put all ingredients in your blender and blend until your desired consistency.
Notes: I’ve also made this slushie with yellow watermelon. To me, the yellow watermelon has a honey taste which adds a whole new dimension to this drink What a delight for your mouth!
