I never thought summer in New York could be so hot, but most of all humid. I think being used to the dry heat is what's definitely making it hard, especially with no AC in my apartment!! I don’t know how I’m surviving, but somehow I’m pulling through. For example, today I decided to make my roommate and I this refreshing strawberry-watermelon lemonade slushy. I was honestly so surprised at how refreshing it was! I didn’t think it would cool me off so much, but even while making it I felt instantly cooler.
All you need is about 8 cups of watermelon, 1 cup of strawberries, ½ a cup to ¾ a cup of lemon juice (depending how sweet and ripe your fruit is), and 1 ½ cups of water or Sprite. Sugar is not really necessary but it’s up to you if you want to add some.
Put it all into a blender or Nutri Bullet as I did ( I love it!), add ice and simply blend. And there you go! Instant refreshment.
