    It’s got just three ingredients, and I guarantee it’ll cool you down faster than you can fry an egg on a hot sidewalk.

    Now, before we get into the recipe, picture this…

    In July of 2010, I was sitting on a breezy balcony overlooking the azure waters of Dream Beach – yes, that’s the real name – on a small island off the coast of Bali. Waves from the Pacific Ocean crashed onto the beach, sending gentle mists of sea spray my way.

    (Just down the island from Dream Beach!)

    The sun was hot as my friends and I took a break from pedaling our bikes around the tiny island of Nusa Lembongan. I ordered a delicious glass of cold watermelon juice to quench my thirst.

    It was sweet, tart, and cold in the best of ways. Brain freeze is a definite possibility!

    I don’t know if it was the beach, the waves, the watermelon or what…

    …but when I got home from that 2-1/2 week trip, I knew I had to recreate that little bit of watermelon slush heaven.

    Now, here’s a fun factoid for you:

    This Watermelon Slush recipe was the first-ever recipe I posted on Stupid Easy Paleo. That’s right…the inaugural recipe that started this whole crazyawesome thing!

    And like a lot of my very early recipes, frankly, this one needed some updating. I’m not too proud to admit that Stupid Easy Paleo has been an absolute work in progress, one big experiment, since day one.

    I’ve learned a TON about what makes for a good blog and drool-worthy photos since 2011…

    …but I always keep the original photos around so you really get that you don’t have to be perfect to start off.

    Here’s the original:
