EPCOT Watermelon Cucumber Slushie recipe

As many of us know, EPCOT’S Flower & Garden Festival got cut short this year because of the park closing. So, this means a lot of us couldn’t indulge in the food and drinks we look forward to each year, like the watermelon cucumber slushie!

I was super happy to learn that the watermelon cucumber slushie is super easy to make at home.

Plus, it’s perfect now that summer is here! Keep scrolling to find out how you can make this refreshing drink at home. 

THE INGREDIENTS

  • 5-6 Cups of Watermelon
  • 12. Oz of Frozen Lemonade
  • 2 Cups of Fresh, Peeled Cucumber
  • 3-4 Cups of Ice

This slushie is so easy to make, you only need 4 ingredients.

I didn’t realize how much slushie this recipe was going to make, and my blender almost overflowed when I was blending it all up.

So, if you’re not making this for a larger group, you can cut the recipe in half and that will be plenty for 2-3 people.

STEP 1: CUBE WATERMELONS AND CUCUMBER

First, you’ll want to cut your watermelon into cubes until you have 5-6 cups measured out.

Next, peel your cucumber and slice it until you have 2 cups.

To give you an idea, I used two medium-sized cucumbers, which gave me a little more than the amount that I needed, but this didn’t affect the taste at all. 

STEP 2: BLEND INGREDIENTS

Alright, so once you have your watermelon cubed and your cucumber peeled and sliced, throw these ingredients in your blender with the frozen lemonade and blend it up! You’ll want to leave out the ice for the first time you blend. 

STEP 3: ADD THE ICE

Slushies need the icy texture after all, right? I mean it wouldn’t be a slushie without it!

After your watermelon, cucumber, and frozen lemonade are all blended up, add in the 3-4 cups of ice and blend until it’s all mixed up. 

Remember when I mentioned how I definitely overestimated how much slushie I would get out of the recipe?

It turns out, I also underestimated how much my blender can hold. When I did this step I couldn’t even add all of the ice in because my blender would have overflowed.

I added about 2 cups of ice to my mixture, and I still got that desired slushie thickness. So if you end up in the same boat as me, there’s no need to worry! 

STEP 4: ENJOY!

Hey, it’s summertime after all? This is the perfect drink to share with friends or family outside on a hot day.

I’ll definitely be making this drink again. The fruity drink is best when served straight away, but if you have leftover they’ll still be good later on.

Since I have so much slushie, I’ve kept it in my fridge for the past day, and it tastes just as good as it did the day I made it. The consistency is a little runnier, but I don’t mind this at all. 

I’d love to know if you’re going to be trying this slushie out too. Head over to our Facebook page to let us know!
