A Watermelon smoothie garnished with mint and a dash of cinnamon on hot summer day is a drink that i could not simply live without!
You can call it a smoothie, slushy or whatever you want. Whatever you choose it will be just fine. How did i come up with a recipe? Well since i love watermelon and mint i thought it would be great to sip on something really cold on a hot summer day that taste like watermelon and mint. Mint leaves from my garden were just waiting to be picked up fresh for this delicious watermelon smoothie!
Take a look at these delicious mint leaves that are growing in my garden.
I have to tell you that it does not take long to prepare this delicious drink so if you are in a hurry and feel hot go for it. Get a fresh watermelon from your local produce market. Cut off two round thick slices. Cut it up into chunks.
Here is how i do it. Toss watermelon and two mint leaves into a blender. Meanwhile crush about two large cups of ice and combine with your watermelon. Sprinkle everything with a pinch of ground cinnamon. Put your favorite blender to work! It takes about 10 seconds i would say for just right consistency.
The last but not least is to enjoy drinking your watermelon smoothie/slushie!
