After a day in the sun, this deliciously slurpable drink offers relief from heat and thirst. Sip it slowly if you can to avoid major brain freeze.

Ingredients:

5 cups 1/2-inch cubes seeded watermelon

1 cup orange juice, chilled

1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade or lemonade concentrate, undiluted

Directions:

Arrange the watermelon in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze it for 45 minutes to an hour or until semi-frozen.

In a blender, combine the watermelon, orange juice and limeade, and process until smooth.

Spoon the slush into cups and serve with a straw, or cover and freeze for later.

Serves four to six people.
