Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie

Serving Size: 2

Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie from Katie Workman/ themom100.comHoly mother of summer, it’s been HOT. My dog is sleeping in out shower because the tiles are cool. I’m testing recipes in the morning because I ‘m not so inclined to have my oven cranking all afternoon. And (this is how I know it’s really hot), I may be coming close to drinking my daily recommended amount of water.  As long as we count diet soda as water.

Has anyone ever carried an umbrella while walking around to shield themselves from the sun? I can’t quite bring myself to do such a thing, but I’m jealous of people who can. All this is by way of saying if you have a blender, get it out. Buy frozen berries and other frozen fruit, or freeze the fresh stuff yourself. Cut watermelon into chunks and stash those in the freezer. Have some honey or agave or simple syrup (see Note) on hand. Blend all of this up, maybe with some crushed ice, or some juice or even some sort of milk or nut milk or yogurt for those of you who are into the creamier thing. Drink.

Rinse and repeat.

After 5:00 p.m. you may also add liquor to the grown up’s glasses. After 4:00 if it’s a Sunday. After 3:00 if it’s above 90°F outside and it’s a Sunday.
