Today we feel like an egg left out on the pavement to cook. Broken and abandoned... Just kidding. Temperatures here have decided to skyrocket again and so we're going to be living in 40 degree days for a bit. On the brink of heat-induced insanity, we needed to find a source of hydration and fast. Our salvation came in the form of my father knocking on the door with arms full of groceries. Much like I mentioned in our banana and chocolate muffin recipe post, the fact that my dad can't pass up fruit on special still stands, because he walked through the door with two huge watermelons, and of course, his beloved bananas. The conversation that occurred went a little like this:
Alexia: Hey Tash, guess what?
Alexia: My dad just walked in the door with watermelon. He intends to eat it himself but I fully intend to sabotage his plans by turning it into a dessert of some sort.
Natasha: Bags being taste-tester.
So off we went into the kitchen to make nice things.
This, however, is why we cannot have nice things:
Cameras should come with a warning: "Objects viewed through camera are closer than they appear," to stop things like this happening. Or maybe Alexia should just be more coordinated. Neither of these things seem likely to happen in the near future.
Regardless of fails, this slushie is so easy, you are only three or four ingredients away from a refreshing and cooling healthy slushie thing.
Watermelon and strawberry slushie:
To every 2 parts of watermelon you use, add 1 part of strawberries and add one and half cups of ice. Whizz it all up in a blender and serve. If you want to, you can add a sprig of fresh mint for an even fresher summer hit. Serve and enjoy!
