Strawberry-Watermelon Slushes

Summer weather is upon us and the heat can be oppressing.  I know I will spend the next few months wilting like a delicate flower in the Texas sun.  If you think I'm being over-dramatic, try being around me in late July when the non-stop complaining and Scarlett O'Hara like attitude really kicks in!  I'm a cold weather girl through and through, always waiting for Autumn's welcoming embrace. Until then, I try to keep cool with fruit smoothies/slushes.  I make them several times a week during the Summer. I even  have one waiting for my husband when he comes in from mowing the yard. Not so much because I'm a caring wife, but because it's a good excuse to make myself one as well!

I'll be putting a few different recipes for slushes up over the next couple of months but this is one of my favorites.  It's simplicity and cool summer flavors can't be beat.

Strawberry-Watermelon Slushes

1 cup Strawberries, sliced
1 cup Watermelon, cubed and seeded
1 cup Pineapple juice
2 1/2 cups ice

In a blender, combine sliced strawberries and cubed watermelon. Pulse several times until the fruit is pureed. Pour in pineapple juice and pulse again to blend. Add ice and pulse until ice is crushed and well blended with drink mixture.
