Minty Watermelon Tea Slush
1 1/2
cups water
Red Zinger® or other red tea bags
tablespoons packed fresh mint leaves*
cups cubed watermelon
tablespoon lemon juice
Sugar, optional
  1. In a small saucepan bring 3/4 cup of the water to boiling. Remove from heat. Add tea bags and mint to saucepan. Let steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Strain tea mixture through a fine mesh sieve, discarding mint and tea bags. Stir in remaining 3/4 cup water. Pour mixture into ice cube trays and freeze 2 hours or until firm.
  2. In a blender combine watermelon cubes and lemon juice. Cover and blend until mixture begins to liquefy. With the motor running, add frozen tea cubes, a few at a time, through the hole in the lid until slushy. Pour into glasses and stir before serving. If desired, sweeten to taste with sugar. Makes 4 (8-ounce) servings.
