Spotlight Recipe: Strawberry Watermelon Slush

by in Healthy Recipes, June 23, 2009

You can’t go wrong with cool, sweet drinks on those dog days. Last week, I shared two classics: Berry Spritzer and Refrigerator Tea. Here’s another favorite to toast summer’s arrival. Made from two fruits that are coming into season, this “slush” is perfect for a party (you’ll want to up the portions) or an afternoon snack with the family.

Strawberry Watermelon Slush
2 servings

1 cup frozen or fresh strawberries (if frozen, look for ones with no added sugar)
1 1/2 cups chopped watermelon, seeds removed
1/4 cup seltzer
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 tablespoon agave nectar or honey
4-6 mint leaves
1 cup ice

Combine all ingredients in a blender, mix and serve.
