Chia Watermelon Fresca

It doesn’t get much better than watermelon in the summer.  It’s beyond sweet!  The other day my teenaged daughter was enjoying a bowl of watermelon and commented, “It actually tastes like candy!”  That’s saying A LOT coming from my daughter who has a MAJOR sweet tooth.  There are many ways to enjoy this summer fruit.  PS:  Adding a sprig of mint will have you thinking you’re enjoying a mojito of sorts.  (Or is that just me?  I always associate mint with mojito drinks–LOL)!
