Nothing says summer more than watermelon! Everyone in my family loves watermelon. We have been buying the sweet little baby melons every week and enjoying them in big slices, cubes and even blended up into these watermelon frosties. This is a refreshing, fun summer drink that grown-ups and kids love. Serve in a beautiful glass with a mint garnish, or play it down and serve in mason jars with a straw. Either way, you can't lose with this one!Watermelon Frosty
recipe from Healthy Happy Life
Makes 4 servings
4 1/2 cups of watermelon, cubed and frozen
3/4 cup water
juice of one lemon
1-2 Tablespoon of maple syrup, agave nectar or sugar *optional
Slice your watermelon into cubes.
This was about half of the baby watermelon. Place in a big ziplock bag and put in the freezer until frozen (about 2-3 hours). I did this step the day before.
When you are ready to make and serve, put the frozen watermelon into a blender.
Add the banana and water.
Squeeze the juice of the lemon into the blender. Add the maple syrup if using.
Blend until smooth and frosty. Yum.
Serve with a garnish of mint and a small piece of watermelon.
How refreshing do those look?
