Watermeloyada

Spice up your summer with a cool and refreshing watermeloyada.

June 27, 2017

With this week’s rising temperatures, there doesn’t seem to be any reprieve from the heat. Sometimes it can be hard to drive to your local raspado shop in hopes of some relief. If you’re looking for a cold summer drink without the hassle of a 110-degree car ride, try this new homemade watermelon slushie. Or as I like to call it – the watermeloyada.

The watermeloyada is the sister of the mangoyada. Mangoyadas can be found at almost any raspado shop. Much like its sister, the watermeloyada has a mixture of sweet, salty, and spicy flavors. Watermeloyadas are similar to a raspado, but are more like a drink.  This watermeloyada is very quick and easy to make, and can be customized to your preference.

For those who do not enjoy spicy food, skip the chamoy and tajin for a sweet, refreshing watermelon slushie.
