Sitting on the deck, visiting with friends on a warm Summer afternoon, it doesn't get much better than that. Oh wait... how about if you add in good food and a Watermelon Strawberry All-Fruit Smoothie? Now, the afternoon just got better.

Watermelon is a staple in our kitchen during the Summer. I love to cut large chunks and keep it in the fridge, nice and cold for snacks. And for picnics and potlucks, watermelon on a stick just can't be beat.

As for the strawberries, well we love those almost year round. But right now, it's strawberry picking season in our area. Nothing compares to a delicious, juicy, fresh picked strawberry.
