Here’s another simple recipe you can make with kids, using watermelon. It’s one of several recipes provided by Abby Reich from ChopChop magazine during her cooking demonstration on June 23, 2016.

2 1⁄4 pounds cold, seedless watermelon
1 cup very cold water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or lime juice
1 1⁄2 tablespoon honey, if you like
pinch salt

Cut the watermelon flesh away from the rind. Cut the watermelon into chunks.

Put the watermelon chunks, water, lime juice, salt and honey in the blender. Put the top on tightly.

Turn the food processor to medium and blend until the mixture is liquidy and smooth.

Turn the machine off, with the small spoon take a taste. Add a little bit more lime juice or honey if you want the drink to be a little more sour or sweet. If you have added more lime juice or honey, put the top back on the blender tightly, turn the blender to medium and blend for about 5 seconds.

Serve right away, or keep covered and refrigerate up to 4 hours. If you do this, give the drink a quick stir before serving.
