It is that time of year again – kids are home and bored and wondering what to do. Here is a fun way to get them in the kitchen making fun, cool treats for the summer!  

Read my article here – Getting Kids in the Kitchen on NPR's Kitchen Window. 

And here is a recipe for a Watermelon Slushie and for the adults, a shot of vodka goes well with it (a tip from the lovely Sala Kannan who photographed the drink for me!) 

Makes 4 servings

4 cups diced watermelon, frozen (freeze fresh watermelon, if possible)

2 tablespoons runny honey

Juice of 2 lemons

Mint leaves and watermelon balls, for garnish

Freeze watermelon for about 6 hours or until it is frozen through. Remove from the freezer and allow to thaw for about 10 minutes.

Mix the honey and the lemon juice together. Place the watermelon and the lemon juice-honey mix in a blender. Puree. If the drink is too thick, add a little water or your favorite juice. Check for sweetness. Add additional honey if needed. Pour into 4 tall glasses and garnish with the mint and watermelon balls.
