5 Ingredient Friday: Watermelon Daiquiri

This week’s 5 Ingredient Friday is inspired by the huge amounts of Yellow Seedless Watermelon in my refrigerator/freezer! What’s a better way to use up some Watermelon than to make a Watermelon Daiquiri? It’s super easy to do, and they are ready in no time. I like to use frozen Watermelon so that I can avoid using ice cubes that will water it down a little. But if you don’t have time to let your Watermelon sit in the freezer for a bit then you can add in some ice cubes.

 

  • 3 cups of frozen Watermelon (I used Yellow Watermelon because I had a lot of it)
  • 2 ounces of Cruzan Rum
  • 1 ounce of Jose Cuervo Tequila
  • the juice of 1 lime
  • 2 Tablespoons of Powdered Sugar (more if you like yours extra sweet)

 

Put the Cruzan Rum, Jose Cuervo Tequila, and the juice of 1 lime in a blender. Add in the 3 cups of frozen Watermelon. Blend until it’s well combined. Add in the Powdered Sugar and blend until frothy. Serve.

What’s your favorite Daiquiri flavor?

Week 13: What’s in the Box?

Wow, is it really What’s in the Box Wednesday already? It almost doesn’t seem possible. It feels like I *just* wrote last week’s post about what we got in the CSA box, and here I am again!

I’m enjoying the CSA more now than I was before, because we’re getting better vegetables. But that doesn’t change my overall feeling of this experience. Yes, it’s been good to try some new vegetables, but 9 times out of 10 I don’t like them, lol. But this is something I can say I tried, even if I didn’t love it.

So anyway…this week we got a few staple vegetables such a Garlic, Green Beans, Green Bell Peppers, a few varieties of Tomatoes, and some Basil! I just need to get some Fresh Mozzarella from Reading Terminal Market and I can make a killer Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Salad! We got a healthy amount of Basil so maybe I’ll make some pesto or something as well.

The Peaches over the last few weeks have been a hit (with me), but we’ll see how long it takes me to get sick of them! But they have been great for an afternoon snack or to cut up and put in a Smoothie. We got quite a few this week, so maybe I’ll make some kind of Peach Cobbler. I am super excited about the Watermelon. I cut into it and noticed there were seeds, so I was pretty bummed about that. So it took me quite a while to get all of the seeds out and cut it up.
