Good Eats – Watermelon Smoothie

Summer time, watermelon time, am I right? When it comes to summer, watermelon is a must have for this household. While Victor was doing the grocery shopping this week, he came home with a gigantic watermelon. There is only so much the two of us can eat, so what about the leftover watermelon?

With Fourth of July  coming up in the next few days, we all know we can’t have a Fourth of July party without a refreshing pitcher of watermelon smoothie. All of a sudden I have an idea, we can totally have some watermelon smoothie on a warm day like today. The best part about this recipe, it takes two ingredients and a blender with just two minutes to make. Of course, this is not a recipe specifically for the Fourth, but also any hot summer day.

I sliced up some watermelon and frozen kiwi that I have in my freezer, put them in my Ninja Professional Blender (BL610) and hit the power button. Do keep in mind that the slush tastes a lot better with chilled watermelon.

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups of sliced seedless watermelon
  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • mint leaves – optional

Instructions:

  1. Combine sliced watermelon and ice cubes in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Top it off with some mint leaves if you like the minty fresh taste.

Viola, the whole process takes less than two minutes. You could also add some vodka if you fancy liquor in your smoothie. Let me know if you like the smoothie for a hot summer day.

Hope you guys enjoy the smoothie as mush as we did.
