Skinny Strawberry-Watermelon Coolers

Summer is the best time to get together with friends and family to enjoy some time outdoors. Rather it is a birthday party, a backyard barbecue, or just spending time with your kids, ice cold beverages are a must!

I like to have a variety of drinks for special occasions. We drink lots of sweet tea around our place but I also like to offer something without caffeine, and tons of sugar. These Skinny Strawberry-Watermelon Coolers were just the ticket. They're packed with summer fruit and a touch of mint for a very refreshing treat.

Skinny Strawberry-Melon Coolers are a nice alternative to ordinary lemonade and they were loved by both kids and adults plus they are so easy to make! I like to make everything easy and it's important that everyone feel right at home when we have people over, especially the kids. If there are special adult beverages then I make sure there is something equally appealing for the kids. Serving them in mason jars just makes it more fun.

Entertaining should always be fun and not stressful, serve these up at your next party or get-together and they are sure to be a hit!
