Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie To Cool The Summer Days

To cool the summer days drink this smoothie often.

 
By Katie Workman, The Associated Press

Holy mother of summer, it’s gotten HOT. My dog is sleeping in our shower because the tiles are cool. I’m testing recipes in the morning because I don’t want 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.

But water can get a little boring.

All this 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 on hand. Blend it all up, maybe with some crushed ice, or 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 p.m., you may also add liquor to the grownups’ glasses. After 4 if it’s a Sunday. After 3 if it’s above 90 degrees Fahrenheit outside and it’s a Sunday.
