Watermelons are the must have in our house. Great if it’s summer and it’s easier to find a quality watermelon almost everywhere.

It gets more tricky in winter months, when most of the watermelons are imported. It reminds me of a Russian Roulette- you never know is it going to be sweet or not.

We have 3 major watermelon eaters in our household– me and my two kids .

So each time we buy a huge watermelon, we leave a half of it uneaten and I traditionally make watermelon popsicles with lime and honey out of it. They are delicious and very refreshing, worth trying!

Watermelon leftovers are going to the fridge until the next day. Perfect breakfast smoothie main ingredient ! Fresh, crisp and crunchy watermelon bites are perfect

I usually blend strawberries all together with the green part- it gives a smoothie an extra nutrition. Make sure to wash your strawberries really well!

Optionally you can use frozen strawberries, like i did in this recipe. It helps to keep the smoothie cold and refreshing.
