Strawberry lime coconut water slushie

Try this refreshing summer drink. With only three ingredients, it's a breeze to make.

This refreshing slushy is made with strawberries, lime, and coconut water.

I can't believe it's June! I’ve been in my apartment for over a month now! I guess it’s time to hang up some art, right? I did finally order a rug and some chairs, so people can sit when they come over.

Let’s talk about this drink. This is like go-to summer drink city: coconut water (frozen into cubes), a few strawberries, and a few juiced limes. Literally, that is it. So, healthy, tasty, easy. The best. I don’t have ice cube trays so I used some popsicle molds to freeze my coconut water the night before, then just plopped them into my Vitamix along with some strawberries and fresh lime juice.

If you haven’t gotten on the coconut water train: do it! It’s so darn tasty, and super good for you. I’m 100 percent a fan. If I could drink 10 each day, I totally would. 

Enjoy this refreshing drink!

1/4 cup coconut water, not frozen

Combine everything in your blender, and blend until smooth! You may need to poke it a bit to get it all blended – it will be pretty thick.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”
