Pink Drink...

One of my favourite summer time drinks is a watermelon smoothie. It's cold, healthy and (almost) non fattning so it can't really get much better than that :) Best of all it's easy to make too - even if you don't have a blender or kitchen machine!

All you need is for about 3 large glasses:
  • About a pint/half a litre of natural low fat yoghurt
  • 1/4 small or 1/8th watermelon cut into chunks.
  • Sugar to taste (or sweetening if you can deal with the artificial taste it adds)
  • For the decoration 2 straws and 2 slices of watermelon about 1/2 inch / 1.25 cm thick per glass
If you are using a kitchen machine or blender just put all the ingredients into the machine and turn it on till smooth.
If you are doing it by hand chop up the watermelon into small 1/4 inch / 1 cm cubes and press through a sieve before mixing it through the yoghurt.

Pour into glasses and slide the slices of watermelon onto the glass - I put the front slice in with the rind in the glass first - then put the second slice pointing the other way second making sure I didn't push it down as far. then add straws and serve


  1. Thanks :D they taste good too!

  2. Looks yammy will have to try with vodka :D

  3. That might probably work actually - might want to vodka infuse the watermelon first for extra flavour :)
