After many days of rain, we’re finally getting some sunshine! Which also means it will be hot and humid again. And that kind of weather calls for something to drink that’s nice and cool, like this Strawberry-Mango Slush. It’s a great summer beverage made with two of my favorite fruits. I really like mango–it’s so good for you and so tasty, too! And it tastes really good blended with strawberries. You can whip this up in your blender in no time when you’re wanting to drink something to help you keep cool!
