I found this recipe a while ago and make it every time I have a watermelon. It is really refreshing and my kids love it! 8 cups cubed and seeded watermelon 1 cup strawberries, halved 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice 1 cup white sugar 2 cups water (you may substitute Sprite or 7-up instead of water) Combine all the ingredients and blend until it is smooth (you may have to do it in 2 batches!) Enjoy! Watermelon Frosty! ..or Margarita. I've been planning on making this Watermelon Frosty recipe for a while now.

Watermelon Frosty! ..or Margarita

But it seemed every time we had fresh watermelon in the house it was gobbled up in just a few hours. Fresh, juicy watermelon has that instant gratification effect on people. Kinda like freshly baked bread, warm oven cookies, hot pizza or a bowl of cherries. It begs to be tasted. Now. Hot Saturday. Smoothie Tip! Watermelon Frostyserves 2 2 1/4 cups frozen watermelon cubes 1/2+ cup water 2 Tbsp maple syrup 1 large lemon, squeezed (lime juice also works very well!

Ever since we got the Blendtec a few months ago, we have turned into a green-smoothie-slurping family! The blender was a gift to my husband from his loving wife… and I will never, not in a trillion, million years, live it down!! It doesn’t matter that he had been saying for a year that he wanted it. It doesn’t matter that he is the healthy one of the family. It doesn’t matter that he is very disappointed if he doesn’t have a green smoothie every single morning now. No, none of that matters because the fact remains that I gave him a kitchen appliance for Christmas!!

So anyway, this is one of our very favorite green smoothies.

Cocktail Hour: Grapefruit Mojito & Chicken Satay

;) Central Iowa tapped out at a toasty 78 degrees again today, which inspired me to whip up a refreshing, ice-cold Grapefruit Mojito to sip on while making dinner this evening. Now, you might think you don’t like grapefruit. Trust me, I get it. I used to feel the exact same way. My 93 year old Grandma has had half a grapefruit sprinkled with sugar for breakfast every single morning for as long as I’ve known her, and whenever my family visited my grandparents in Ohio growing up, I’d ask for the other half so I could be just like her, even though I secretly loathed the bitter, acidic taste of grapefruit.

This is it! Despite the cute little spoon with serrated edges she’d give me to loosen the segments nestled inside the fruit, and the heaps of sugar I’d pour on top, I could never get past the pucker-inducing flavor, and usually aborted the mission after a few scoops. Sour, yes, but also much sweeter than I remembered – and SO juicy! Strawberry Nutella Poptarts.

Strawberry Nutella Poptarts

Seriously. I have no idea what I am going to wear or say….and I’m pretty sure the producer over at Good Morning Jacksonville has no idea what she has gotten herself into. Sure, I’m great on the blog…but give me a big camera sending out a live feed, a sharp knife and my foot in mouth tendencies… well I am sure it’s going to go splendidly. While I may not have it all figured out just yet, I have decided that I will talk like Julia Child and only refer to myself in third person. First, take some store bought pie dough. Roll out the pie dough till it’s pretty thin. On one pie dough rectangle, spread a layer of Nutella. Cut a strawberry slice into the shape of a heart (slice a strawberry lengthwise into slices and then curve out the stop with a paring knife to create the heart shape).

Using the strawberry heart as a pattern, cut out a heart shaped hole in the second piece of dough. Frozen Hot Chocolate! Today’s post is from Adrianne and Caroline of A Cozy Kitchen.

They picked the perfect warm weather treat to share with us today: Frozen Hot Chocolate Milkshake from TK member MamaFoodie. Take it away, gals! Like every other human on planet earth, I, too love a good milkshake. With the summer swiftly approaching, I’ve been on the lookout for a new one to whip up on those hot, sweaty days LA is known for. Most milkshakes involve just a few ingredients thrown together in a blender; admittedly, this involves a few extra steps. Grab your blender. Here’s the play-by-play: You’ll need to get some ingredients together, most of which you probably already have in your pantry/freezer.

In a double boiler (or a bowl set over a pot with simmering water), add the sugar, hot chocolate mix… And butter. It’ll become a thick chocolate, buttery paste. Description.

Orange Dream Milkshakes As a kid, I always loved orange creamsicles.

Orange Dream Milkshake

I hadn’t had them in a while, and while browsing the ice cream aisle with my son, he pointed and screamed for the orange popsicles that looked like lizards. At the discount grocery where we were shopping, the store brand orange creamsicles had pictured on the box the cartoon head, feet and tail of a little bright green lizard. My son was instantly attracted to the cute lizards. He’s obsessed with the little guys. We went through our orange creamsicles way too fast, and I wanted to make something else that had the same flavor, so I thought milkshakes would be the perfect thing. Orange Dream Milkshakes Ingredients 6 oz orange juice frozen concentrate, half of a 12 oz container 16 oz vanilla ice cream 1 cup milk 1/2 teaspoon vanilla whipped cream for garnish Method 1. 2.

Judah is a great eater, but I have found it difficult to get enough green veggies into him each day.

He loves carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, etc. But, when it comes to the leafy greens, I just can’t figure him out. It was a while ago that I first heard about the Green Monster movement . I love that the spinach is evident by a beautiful green color, yet doesn’t impact the flavor of the smoothie hardly at all. Judah drinks an entire travel cup of this every day and still asks for more. You can use any type of leafy green, but I’ve found spinach is the least taste altering. *Note: You can basically use any combination of frozen fruit, however, if you use other colors like red raspberries or strawberries, your smoothie will turn brown.
