Are you looking for a great drink to cool off with? Try this fresh watermelon juice recipe!

It’s loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. One way to get a refreshing and thirst quenching drink is to make your own juice. It’s the best way you can be sure there are no added sugars or chemicals.

INGREDIENTS:

1 small sweet watermelon about 6 pounds

1 small lime, juiced

INSTRUCTIONS:

Slice the watermelon in half.

Assuming your watermelon isn’t seedless, slice the halves into smaller strips and use a small spoon to scoop out the seeds.

Discard the seeds, and scoop chunks of watermelon from the rind into the blender. If the watermelon is seedless, use a big spoon to scoop chunks of watermelon flesh into the blender.

Blend the watermelon, squeeze the juice of one small lime into the blender and blend for a few seconds.

Pour the watermelon juice into a pitcher or pour directly into glasses, over ice. Enjoy!

National Cherry Cobbler Day

National Cherry Cobbler Day is dedicated every May 17th to the delicious tart dessert that many enjoy with ice cream.

In the United States, cobbler refers to a variety of dishes that consist of a fruit filling (cherry being a popular choice ) covered with a batter or pie crust that is then baked. Some cobblers have both a top and bottom crust.

Cobblers originated in the early British American colonies. It was because of the lack of suitable ingredients and proper cooking equipment that the English settlers were unable to make their traditional suet puddings, so to improvise, they covered a stewed filling with a layer of uncooked biscuits or dumplings.

A cherry cobbler differs from a crisp as a cobbler lacks oatmeal. Sometimes the cobbler is topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
