It's doable...Quench your sweet and sour tooth at the same time: Watermelon, pineapple, and lime slushy

A few weeks back I stumbled upon a recipe that was just too good to pass up! It's a great fruit slushy, with no added sugar and delicious in winter! I love that it quenches both my sweet and sour tooth. 

WHAT  YOU'LL NEED:

-1/2 pineapple (I just get a container of pineapple like the picture)

-1/4 watermelon

-1-2 limes according to your taste, I like mine a bit sour

-Ice cubes (about 3 handfuls)

-Optional: sugar free sweetener of your choice

-Blender or large food processor

STEPS:

1) Cut the watermelon (doesn't need to be pretty) and throw it into the blender.  Add your lime juice and blend until there are no more chunks.  (I found that my blender was having trouble blending the chunks, so I held the top of the blender and the base and shook it a little bit and it worked it's way through).

2) Cut your pineapple.  I cut big strips of it right in the container, but be careful not to cut through the flimsy plastic!  Then throw it in and blend.  (Note: if you're using a blender you may have to pour half of the juice into your serving pitcher or punch bowl to be able to blend all of the ingredients.  Once finished, just mix with a spoon and it will come out normally).

3) Last throw in your 3 handfuls of ice and blend.

4) Depending on the person, sugar substitute may be desired.

I love drinking this in the winter... you almost forget about the cold weather... almost :)
