Have you fallen in love with the Frosted Lemonade Recipe from Chick-fil-A as much as I have?
Oh, my goodness. It is definitely one of my favorite classic lemonade drinks during the summer heat.
And when we were living in AZ and it was warm all year long, it was good that fast food chain was a half hour drive away. Otherwise, I would have been there a few times a week!

These watermelon lemonade slushies are going to be a great way to use up some leftover watermelon from a cookout or summer barbecue. The best thing is that it won’t take long at all until your cooling off on a hot day with friends and family enjoying your favorite summer flavors.
What do I need to make this Frozen Lemonade?
- Italian sweet cream coffee creamer
Yes, it might sound odd, but it works. Can’t find the Sweet Cream, you can use my recipe for Homemade French Vanilla Coffee Creamer, which will work just as well.
Also, you could use a cup of vanilla ice cream, and add just a few ice cubes if needed.
- Frozen watermelon cubes
Directions for freezing are below!
- Watermelon juice
Yeah, I didn’t think it was a thing either until I saw it in the OJ section of my local grocery store.
- Instant Lemonade Mix / Powder
I like to use Country Time Lemonade Mix in this recipe.
- Whipped cream and fresh watermelon slices for garnish, if desired.
What is the perfect way watermelon slushie?
It’s so super easy to make this watermelon drink!
Put everything in your blender (or food processor even!) and mix away!
For best results, I recommend blending all of the ingredients for at least 2-3 minutes. That way the lemonade mix will incorporate really well into the liquids and won’t be gritty.
Can you freeze watermelon?
I honestly didn’t think you could, but you can.
Cut the fresh watermelon up into small chunks and place in a single layer onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. You can place them close together, but not so close that they touch and stick to each other. That would make the frozen fruit more difficult to store.
Place into the freezer for a few hours until it hardens and then use what you need or place into freezer bags to store.
it will keep in the freezer for about 9 months.
*If not using a seedless watermelon, I highly recommend that you remove any and all black seeds from the chunks before freezing, or your blender might become angry.
Can I make a frozen watermelon lemonade cocktail?
How incredible would THAT be?
And that’s a big ol’ YES, too!

- ¼ cup of rum
- ¼ cup of Rumchata Limón
- ¼ cup of vodka
- ¼ cup of gin
