This weekend was rainy for the first time in forever (I obviously listen to the Frozen soundtrack too much). I loved it and all I wanted to do was spend time in the kitchen. While the kids were busy making tents in every room of the house (using every blanket in the house) I decided to ignore the growing mess by making Peanut Butter cookies, chili, soup and watermelon and honeydew slushies. I figured as long as I stay in the kitchen I’d avoid tripping and falling on the tents/toys scattered around. 

I found the idea to make watermelon slushies over on the FoodNetwork blog, perfect for National Watermelon day today. Slushies are by far the simplest thing I’ve made all summer and really fun for kids. They take just minutes to prepare, pretty much just blend and freeze fruit! I love this idea for gatherings with friends and family especially if kids are involved. 

I also had some leftover honeydew and thought…why not! I love the combination of honeydew with lime and mint so blended it all up, froze it and made this fantastic frozen treat. The kids loved it– even my picky eater approved, she yelled, “it’s like ice-cream!”

Give these slushies a try…so incredibly easy and a fun treat for your family. Also a great source of Vitamin C and no sugar added!
