Last week, I wrote about July 24 and how the National Climactic Data Center has declared it the hottest day of the year. Will there be hotter days in August in your area? Maybe, but the temperature nationwide (on average) is higher today than any other day of the year.
With that heat wave in mind, the National Watermelon Promotion Board (NWPB) has declared today “National Drink Watermelon Day.”
The NWPB is working with several bloggers to help spread the word and some recipes for how you can drink your watermelon. Here are just a few of the highlights:
Healthy Slow Cooking – Watermelon Lemon-Balm Mint Cooler
Run Eat Repeat – Watermelon Sangria
The Fit Fork – Watermelon Ginger Limeade (right)
Family Spice – How to Make Watermelon Juice
Chocolate Moosey – Watermelon Yogurt Pops (below)
Mother Would Know – Watermelon Agua Fresca
Wholesome Mommy – Refreshing Watermelon and Green Tea Ice Pops
Elizabeth Somer blog – Watermelon Zapper
If you’re thirsty (today or any other warm day this summer), feel free to check out any of the blogger recipes. You can also stay hydrated with some of the drink recipes on the National Watermelon Promotion Board website. Cheers!
