Watermelon Smoothies

These might be more of a slushie than a smoothie... is there a difference?  I know Summer is on its way out in most places, but still it lingers on in AZ!  So whether you're just suffering in surviving the Valley of the Sun, experiencing a random heatwave elsewhere, or making plans for your next poolside BBQ, keep this sweet chiller in mind.

  • 1 1/2 c. raspberry lemonade
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 2 handfuls of frozen strawberries
  • 4 handfuls of frozen cubed watermelon
  1. Combine lemonade and water in a blender.  Add strawberries and watermelon and blend.
Tip:  I like buying the little, round watermelons.  The ones that are the size of other melons.  They tend to be sweeter.  And they're just the right size for my little family.  BUT, if you plan on taking this to a party, get a normal watermelon and serve your chilled concoction inside a scooped out watermelon bowl!  *B
