As soon as the solstice hit, it was like Austin decided to start summer with a bang! It’s the kind of hot that totally kicks you in the face. But since there’s little you can do about it, you might as well jump in the water and drink hydrating refreshments every chance you get.
Watermelon juice is not only one of my favs, but quite possibly the easiest fruit to juice. In fact, I wholeheartedly believe that it’s begging to be juiced. So much liquid, barely any pulp, just tons of the good stuff.
FoodFash Watermelon Peach Fizz
1/2 small, seedless watermelon
2 ripe peaches, skinned
Remove rind from watermelon and skin from peaches and chop into large pieces. Add the fruit to blender and pulse until well blended. Pour two parts juice and one part sparkling water, along with ice, into a cocktail shaker and shake, shake, shake. Strain juice into a pretty glass or plastic pool cup and enjoy!
I bet this juice could also be frozen and turned into pops or splashed with coconut rum as well.
