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!
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!
