We sadly sent our kids and grandkids back to P-town today, after a sweet week-long visit. We enjoyed lots of great meals from the garden and Wesley loved cooking and eating outside while scanning the landscape for wild animals. Tatem was busy entertaining us with delightful squeals and smiles.
In between meal times, there was water play, pool splashing, tractor riding and popsicle slurping! Wesley devoured these refreshing popsicles with mint and lime.
4 cups cubed watermelon
1/4 cup loosely packed mint
juice of 1/2 lime
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. If you want, you can add a tablespoon of honey or agave nectar. I did not and Wesley slurped it down. Mom would love these as well.
Ruby Crush (from Clean Eating Magazine)
This is a great recipe for those 1 1/2 inch – 2 inch beets you get after thinning a row of beets. This ruby red juice quickly became a favorite!
1/2 inch peeled ginger
2 oranges, peeled
4 oz. beets scrubbed clean (about 3 small)
Ice, as desired
Using a juicer, juice produce in the following order: ginger, oranges, and beets. Stir well and serve over ice, if desired. You will be so surprised at how refreshing and yummy this drink is!!
