The trouble with heading back to school is that it invariably happens when it still feels like summer. Sitting in a hot classroom on a sunny, summery day can be a total downer.
While I can't do much about the weather or the school calendar, I can offer my kids a few cool and refreshing after school treats to help them beat the back to school blues.
I will welcome them home with a frosty glass of watermelon lemonade, a sweet and refreshing drink I can feel good about serving. It's nothing more than watermelon, ice, lemon juice and a splash of honey blended until thick. I have also used frozen strawberries, grapes, peaches and raspberries to make an even thicker, slushy-like drink.
