Summer in a glass

Summer has been a mixture of sunshine and rain so far. I’ve had fruits ripen too quickly and needed to be used up before they went off. On one such scorching day, I had a melon and some strawberries that were begging to be finished.

Here’s the MelBerry Smoothie that they turned into.

It doesn’t need a recipe really. Throw in a combination of coolers like melons or cucumbers, flavour with berries or mangoes or any other fruits you like. And there you have it – summer in a glass.
