Berry Banana Sherbert

This is kind of like a Smoothie, but you don't have to get out the blender or smoothie machine every time.

4-6 cups of seeded watermelon
1-2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries (hulled)
optional``substitute more watermelon``
1 cup of whole milk (or at least 2%) This won't taste 'milky--either way.'
1 cup orange juice
3-4 bananas (I always use 4)
sweetener equal to 15 pkgs.
1 TB lemon juice
Mash all together with a potato masher or back of a large spoon
Freeze in ice cube trays or Popsicle molds or used yogurt cups etcetera. Insert a plastic picnic spoon if you don't have anything else.
The first two ingredients are flexible, the rest are not.

You can also add 1TB of vanilla flavoring if you want.
