WATERMELON LIME COOLER: Refreshing Summer Drink

Here is an outtake recipe video! Read: “Web Exclusive”, AKA We didn’t have enough time to include it in the edit of the next episode, so you get this little internet video!

In Episode 4, you’ll see me sharing this drink with the special guest, so here’s what we’re drinking!

  • 1 small banana (or 1/2 of a really large banana)
  • 3 cups watermelon, cut into chunks (no seeds)
  • 1/8th lime wedge
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/2 cup water

Put everything in a blender and… blend! (If you have a high-speed blender and organic limes, you can keep the rind on the lime. Otherwise, just remove the rind.)

Pour into some lovely glasses and garnish with extra lime! Share with a crafty friend. Or drink it all yourself while watching Say Yes to the Dress marathons (oopsies).

EPISODE 4 WILL AIR THIS SUNDAY, August 5th, on RCN Channel 4 at 9:30pm. It will be posted online next week!

FALL SMOOTHIE: 4 Ingredients, No Added Sugar

I was going to say it has 5 ingredients, but have we started to consider ice an ingredient? Does it count? I don’t know. In any case, you need some ice for this so adjust the math as you see fit.

This is another “throw everything in the blender and hit the ‘on’ button” recipes, but I’m still going to take credit for it because IT WAS DELICIOUS and tasted like a DELICIOUS CREAMY FROZEN DESSERT but it EASY and NOT UNHEALTHY AT ALL! Win win win win!

Vegan Fall Smoothie


  • 1 banana
  • 1 medium apple
  • 1 cup plain almond milk (or other nondairy milk)… forgot to measure this, oopsies!
  • PUMPKIN PIE SPICE* to taste
  • one large glass of ice (to make a thick smoothie or less if you want it thinner)
*PUMPKIN PIE SPICE. Let’s dicuss: If you didn’t already know, you can buy prepared “pumpkin pie spice” which is already blended up nicely for you and contains all the goodies like cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. But you can put it on aallllll kiiiinnnnndddss of fall foods and instantly they became DELICIOUS like you are a magical chef/baker/cook. Then you have better self esteem that lasts all day! Look at you!
