Recipe: Fruit Cooler

Fruit Coolers are a tasty way to use my favortie fruits that are in season right now where I live: watermelon and strawberries.

  • 2 cup Strawberries, remove green, rinse and cut in half
  • 3 scoops Watermelon, use an ice cream scoop
  • 1 tablespoon Local honey or organic sugar
  • 2 cups Crushed ice
  • 1/4 cup sparkling water (I like Pellegrino brand)
  • Splash of sparkling water
  • Optional: if you have fresh mint, rinse a few leaves clean with water and use as a garnish in your glass

Place first 5 ingredients into blender, blend until smooth. If the ingredients are blending easily, add a little extra sparkling water. Pour into glasses and top with a splash of sparkling water which adds a great fizz to the drink. Add a mint leaf to your glass for a fun garnish.  Yields 2 servings.  I added a few blueberries to the batch in the photo which was tasty too.

Thanks for reading!
