I am officially all-in on watermelon right now. It all started a couple of weeks ago when we had our parents over for some grilling and my mom asked what she could bring. Since we were grilling steaks, I wanted to keep the rest of the meal light, so on a whim, I told her a fruit salad. She showed up with the biggest fruit salad known to man – it was packed with watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, pineapple and mango. Since then, I’ve been keeping a big bowl of fruit salad in the fridge and have been eating it pretty much non-stop. I can’t get enough!

I was flipping through an old issue of Donna Hay and saw a page on summer fruit drinks. Watermelon and peach slushie? Yes, please!

My version is an alcohol-free drink, perfect for serving if you have kids at a picnic. If you prefer a spiked version, I provide directions for that, too :)  These are cool, refreshing, and taste every bit like summer. Some muddled mint would be a fabulous addition, as well!

If I had a hammock, I would spend my summer days lounging and sipping on these drinks!
