This is my last summer recipe before I launch into High Holiday cooking, so what better core ingredient to highlight than the essence of summer itself—watermelon!

This drink is fun and refreshing, and takes about 35 seconds from beginning to end. If you have some left over, pour into popsicle molds and freeze for an easy frozen treat.


  • 10 frozen strawberries
  • ½ lb. watermelon
  • Salt
  • Ice


  1. Place the strawberries in a strong blender or the bowl of your food processor, and pulse until it resembles crumbs.
  2. Add the watermelon and salt, and blend. Add ice and blend until thick.
  3. Drink immediately.

Optional (for adults only): add a splash of alcholol
