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!) Watermelon Frosty! ..or Margarita. I've been planning on making this Watermelon Frosty recipe for a while now.

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. Greena Colada Smoothie.

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.

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.

This is part of Judah’s breakfast practically every morning. 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.
