Watermelon n Ginger Slushy

OMG!     The weather in Los Angeles is up to three digits in some areas, and it’s September!   Can you believe that?     And some people think that is no such thing of global warming! How sad! Anyhow!

Watermelon is one of the hubby’s favorite fruit and he buys it one after another all summer long.  Sometimes, he complains how bad the watermelon tasted and not as sweet as it should be, still, he buys it all the times. Whenever the watermelon tastes like water and no melon, I often make slushy, like this one, with a dash of fresh ginger.   And you know what?   After big sips of this slushy that often giving me a brain freeze, I don’t even care. Because it makes my “hot as hell” goes away!


Watermelon and ginger is a mate made from heaven! They blend perfectly together when making a drink that provide a rich refreshing tastes that ginger helps in enhancing and bringing out the sweetness even when watermelon is not sweet. And you may already know that they are numerous health benefits of ginger, including reduce cough, cold, and sore throat; ease cramping in women during period; anti-inflammatory and helps muscles aches; reduce motion sickness; fight gall stones; and can help control cholesterol levels. See? I think that’s enough reasons why I include ginger to most of my dishes…and you should, too.

2 cups chopped seedless watermelon
1 tbsp granulated sugar (more or less can adjust to your own)
1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
1 cup crushed ice
