SUMMER SMOOTHIE. A Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie will help beat the heat this summer. (Cheyenne Cohen via AP)

Cooking on deadline: Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie

By Katie Workman

The Associated Press

Holy mother of summer, itís gotten HOT. My dog is sleeping in our shower because the tiles are cool. Iím testing recipes in the morning because I donít want my oven cranking all afternoon. And (this is how I know itís really hot), I may be coming close to drinking my daily recommended amount of water.

But water can get a little boring.

All this by way of saying, if you have a blender, get it out. Buy frozen berries and other frozen fruit, or freeze the fresh stuff yourself. Cut watermelon into chunks and stash those in the freezer. Have some honey or agave or simple syrup on hand. Blend it all up, maybe with some crushed ice, or juice, or even some sort of milk or nut milk or yogurt for those who are into the creamier thing. Drink. Rinse and repeat.

After 5:00pm, you may also add liquor to the grownupsí glasses. After 4:00pm if itís a Sunday. After 3:00pm if itís above 90ļ Fahrenheit outside and itís a Sunday.

Katie Workman has written two cookbooks focused on easy, family-friendly cooking, Dinner Solved! and The Mom 100 Cookbook.
