Oh, summer. How I love you.
Except when you’re so hot and humid I break out in an insta-sweat as soon as I step outside. Southern living!
But it’s kind of unavoidable when you have a child who LOVES being outside. I’ve been making iced coffee for myself, but of course, my little one needs a special drink for himself.

Cue the 3-ingredient Watermelon Cucumber Slushie!
I quite enjoy this summer slushie, too. It’s naturally sweet, refreshing, cold, and yum.
Cut up and freeze a bunch of watermelon cubes in advance, and you can make this slushie super fast on the fly. (If you’re like me, I only cut up a half of a watermelon at a time, and freezing the other half is a great way to preserve that sweet treat and transform it into something delicious.)
In a world of convenience, it can be tough to eat healthy – but simple recipes like this make it almost effortless.
Pssst – did you notice those awesome glass straws?! They’re a great alternative to plastic straws, saving you money in the long run, and saving the earth and our ocean life from plastic waste. I found them on Amazon – and they even come with a special cleaning brush! LOVE. Even my toddler uses them (and hasn’t broken them! Score.)
