Frozen Watermelon Virgin Margaritas

We celebrating Labor Day today poolside with the Beiers. The only labor intensive thing I did today was make Frozen Watermelon Virgin Margaritas and I'll let you in on a little secret: they were pretty easy to make.

I recommend this to anyone who is pregnant or someone who wants to pretend he/she is drinking a margarita but wants to spare the calories. I found this on the weight watchers recipe board years ago and never tried it. Recipe makes four servings if you pour in little glasses, or two servings if pouring in a full sized glass. I topped it off with whipped cream but I'm sure it's still tasty without it. I didn't do the garnish because that would have been too much labor for me to endure.

Frozen Watermelon Virgin Margaritas - 1 point

4 cups watermelon chunks, seeds removed
6 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp sugar
4 cups ice
1/8 tsp table salt
1/2 lime(s), cut into wedges for garnish

Combine all ingredients, except lime wedges, in a blender; puree until smooth. Divide among 4 glasses. Garnish with lime wedges.
