This is the easiest recipe ever and I usually don’t even bother writing down recipes this simple, but this drink has been on my menu almost every day this summer, so I figured it makes sense to jot this one down.
In Estonia, where I live, we usually have a few weeks of real summer if we are lucky. Estonian summer means something around 70°F for days and 50-60°F during nights, so rather chilly. But this year has surprised us with a real heatwave and we have had the temperatures around and even over 80°F for almost 6 weeks already. This also means that the temperature inside my apartment is constantly around 80°F and this is not so nice anymore... At one point I seriously considered just sleeping in a hammock on my terrace where there is at least a little wind. But generally, I am rather happy with the hot weather.
Hot weather means hot weather food or rather hot weather drinks like smoothies, iced tea, iced coffee, ice cream, and everything else that comes cooled.
This one here is one of my favorites from this summer. I would call it a slushie, but a healthy and a really delicious one. I can’t explain it scientifically, but I feel that watermelon quenches thirst better compared to regular water (which I, of course, also drink in excessive amounts), and since my own little balcony garden has given me a lot of strawberries over the summer it just makes sense to combine them.
One thing to note here is that I highly recommend using frozen strawberries. In case you have fresh strawberries at hand another option is to freeze up cubed watermelon. Just make sure that one of the ingredients is frozen as you don’t want to end up with a juice, but a niche thick slushie consistency.
Cooking time: 5 minutes
7 oz diced watermelon
7 oz frozen strawberries
Add both ingredients to the blender and blitz until smooth. Drink immediately.
