Watermelon Slushies

How is it already the end of July!? We’ve had an incredible summer so far, filled with plentiful sunshine, fresh produce and lots of fun times with friends and family. The last few weeks we’ve been trying to make the most out of our time in Seattle by checking off things on our bucket list before we move in two weeks! We’ve hit up some parks and beaches and eaten at some amazing restaurants. One year has gone by way too fast and we’ve loved our time in Seattle. However, we’re excited for the next stage and moving back to Canada. Other exciting news is that I passed the Washington State edTPA which means I am now a fully certified teacher! I have 10 days left of class and then I will be finished with my Master’s Degree. The MIT program has been amazing and has inspired me even more to follow my passion for teaching and educating others. It has definitely changed the way I perceive the teaching profession and I am thankful for the wonderful faculty mentors and peers I have met during the process. I can’t wait until the day I have my own classroom. However, until then I will enjoy all the free time I can get!

This recipe was created during the heat wave we had last week when our apartment was still 80 degrees at 10pm and Bryce and I were overheating and trying to cool down in order to go to sleep. I had a small watermelon in the fridge and with a few simple steps we had a great treat that cooled us off instantly! We laughed as we drank these because within 5 minutes of me drinking mine I had goosebumps on my arms! You could easily add other fruit you have on hand to jazz these up, but I love the pure watermelon flavor! I added the salt because it helps bring out the watermelon flavor. If you’ve ever had salt on watermelon you’ll know what I’m talking about! I hope everyone is finding ways to keep cool this summer 🙂
