Happy Canada Day!
We have been so blessed/lucky and happy to live in one of the best countries in the world for eight years now. Two years ago, after going through language and Canadian history tests, and an exhilarating Citizenship ceremony we have officially become proud Canadians! It has been a long way, and sometimes (well, many times) not easy, but we now have so many friends here, and can proudly call Canada our Home. There is one thing I wish I could change, and that is to have my sister and her family live here too! But that is a story for another time. Now, I wanted to share a refreshing Canada Day Watermelon Slush with you.

I must admit, I am not a huge fan of watermelons. I like melons more. But today we need to show our pride drinking wearing red and white, waving Canadian flags, and just celebrating Canada’s birthday! This year it is a special one:
Canada’s 150th Birthday!
And what a summer birthday is without a good plate of fruit and a good drink! As you know, I like simple and easy recipes. Also, I don’t like to limit myself following the exact proportions/instructions (this is probably why I am not a great baker, as you do need to follow the recipe). And you can play around how you want your slush too.
Alan was happy to help 🙂
The leftover watermelon flesh was squeezed into a blender with some ice, and then I thought I could add another “secret” ingredient which is also red, so it worked out perfectly: a few strawberries. Straight from the garden 🙂
Blend it all. Have the glasses with some more ice ready. Pour the mix into the glasses, add some mint (of course, fresh from the garden he-he). And voila!
Canada Day Watermelon Slush
It is really nice just like so. But, if you are looking for something a bit sweeter than that, you can go ahead and add one more pure Canadian ingredient:
This is it! You have a beautiful watermelon plate and watermelon smoothie in just a few minutes!
Happy Canada Day!
Happy Independence Day to our neighbours to the South!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I would love to hear what your favourite drinks to celebrate summer holidays. Please share your ideas in the comments below 🙂
