Melon-Berry Slush is this week's Cooking with Diane recipe.

With these overly hot days we have been having this summer. I have been trying to find cool recipes. The frosty slush really hits the spot. Not only is it healthy, but delightfully refreshing. Try it and stay cool.

Melon-Berry Slush

1/2 cup lemon juice

1/2 -3/4 cup sugar (to your taste)

2 cups of cubed seedless watermelon

2 cups strawberries (or your favorite berry)

2 cups ice cubes

Place first four ingredients in a blender; cover and blend until smooth. Pour these ingredients into another container and set aside.

Put ice cubes in blender 1 cup at a time and process until slush. In a large pitcher, mix the ice and blended fruit and serve immediately. Keep any leftover slush in your freezer.
