I live in Southern California and let me just say that the Summer heat is not holding back. On the first day of summer, we experienced 112 degree weather. Yup. I am completely amazed that I did not melt. As it is just the beginning of Summer, we are trying to find ways to make sure that we keep cool and hydrated. Luckily watermelons are completely delicious this time of the year and we jump at the opportunity to consume them as much as possible.
Besides just chopping it up and eating it from a huge bowl, we like to make Watermelon Juice or Agua de Sandia as we call it here in my house. Super easy and quick. All you have to do is cube up the watermelon, add sugar to your liking, include some water and blend. Thats it! You can strain it if you prefer a smoother drink but other than that, theres not much to it.
I also love to add the juice to ice cube trays and freeze! You can add it to the same drink, or infuse it with plain water or other drinks.
One last idea that we love to do is dice up really small pieces of watermelon and add them to our drink. It sounds a little weird but believe me, believe me….it’s delicious!
We love how easy it is for Ariana to use all of her Nuby items to consume this delicious snack and any other, really. They’ve made snack, lunch and dinner time a breeze. The mat makes for easy cleanup and it is safe for the microwave and dishwasher. Her cups are easy for meal time and on the go! & her utensils help make her feel like she fits right in the the adults at the table!
