Watermelon Cooler by Jodie Fitz

3 cups diced watermelon

4 cups ice

2 lemons, fresh

½ cup PICS honey

1 teaspoon PICS vanilla extract

2 cups water

Remove the fruit of the watermelon from the rind and dice it into small chunks.  Measure 3 cups of watermelon.  Add it to the blender.

Measure and add 4 cups of ice to the blender. 

Cut the lemons in half and extract the juice from the lemons using your hands, a citrus squeezer or juicer.  If you are extracting the juice by hand, squeeze the lemon juice into a bowl and remove the seeds before adding the lemon juice to the blender.

Add the honey, vanilla extract and water to the blender.

Blend the ingredients well and serve!

Little Hands:  Younger children can cut the watermelon using a plastic knife.
