Watermelon Smoothies

Sunday, July 5, 2009

Need something sweet and refreshing at the end of a hot summer day? This watermelon smoothie from the Family Fun magazine will just hit the spot with its cool tangy sweetness. My kids loved the fact that the finished product looked just like a watermelon slice with its chocolate chip "seeds" and I loved the fact that they're getting a whole serving of fruit disguised as a treat!

The ingredients:
3 cups cubed seedless watermelon
1 cup crushed ice
1 cup watermelon, raspberry, or lime sherbet
4 tsp. lime juice
2 tsp. miniature semisweet chocolate chips

In a blender, combine the watermelon, ice, sherbet, and lime juice; cover and process for 30 seconds or until smooth. Stir if necessary. Pour into chilled glasses; sprinkle with chocolate chips. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

If you have any leftover watermelon you need help getting rid of after you make the smoothies, I know a couple of kids who could help you out...no problem!

I could really use one right now! I love the "seeds" part. This would be a fun treat to eat out by the pool.

This looks delicious, Lara. I happen to have most of a HUGE watermelon taking up valuable real estate in the bottom of my fridge right now. I think this would be a perfect use for it. Thanks so much for sharing :)

I made this the other day, using some berry ice I had in the freezer instead of the sherbet. Boy was it good!
