What to do with over ripe Watermelons

Q: What do you do with over ripe watermelon (on the mushy side), especially if it's organic and you paid a lot for it! 

A: Well don't take it back to the store! It's perfectly sweet, so make Blueberry Watermelon Coolers! 

This is so easy, it doesn't need a recipe :)

First, I juiced the entire medium size watermelon (okay, except for the rind) in my Omega 8005 juicer. 

Then, I added frozen blueberries, maybe 1 cup for every 2 cups of watermelon juice, and blended until smooth in the Vitamix. Voila! You have a refreshing beverage that is perfect on a hot summer day.

My kids loved it! There was leftover watermelon juice and they drank that too :)

It is super yummy! My kids finished off all of the cooler and the leftover watermelon juice all in a day :)
