This frosty literally takes only a few minutes to make and is a guilt free dairy free, allergy free treat!
2 1/4 cups watermelon cubes, frozen
1/2+ cup water
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 large lemon, squeezed (lime juice also works very well! use 2 limes)

The night before, cube 2 1/2 cups of watermelon and lay the cubes on a cookie sheet and place the watermelon ladden cookie sheet in the freezer. Leave the watermelon cubes in the freezer overnight or until frozen. Place all the ingredients in a Vita-Mix or blender and whirl away for a few minutes.
