As the days of summer slowly come to an end over the next month and a half I thought I would find a recipe to place my seal of approval on. I looked for one that would have a summer touch to it and looks like a great cool down for a hot summer Sunday. I don't know about the rest of you, but I live in the south where you sit under a shade tree and sip on something ice cold like some sweet tea, lemonade or something of the sort. Most of us also love to enjoy snacking on some cold watermelon during the summer or homemade ice cream.
I have found a recipe on Allrecipes.com with a touch of summer to it. It has frozen strawberries and watermelons in it.
This recipe was submitted to Allrecipes.com by Nobody'sGirl. I am putting my stamp of approval on this recipe and hope you all enjoy it.
