Watermelon Drink and Float



Fresh watermelon may be eaten in a variety of ways and is also often used to flavor summer drinks and smoothies.



Watermelon contains about six percent sugar by weight, the rest being mostly water. As with many other fruits, it is a source of Vitamin C. It is not a significant source of other vitamins and minerals unless one eats several kilograms per day.

Watermelon seeds are rich in fat and protein and are widely eaten as a snack.especially in China, competing with sunflower seeds.

Watermelon rinds are also edible, and sometimes used as a vegetable. In China, they are stir- fried, stewed, or more often pickled. When stir-fried or pickled, the skin and fruit has to be removed using. Look out for the Watermelon Pickle recipe tomorrow.


Ingredients:

Watermelon flesh (preferably seedless watermelon)

Ice Cubes

Vanilla Ice cream for float

a squeeze of fresh lime

Method:

Blend ice cubes with watermelon flesh.

Add in a squeeze of fresh lime into the watermelon drink.

For Watermelon Float, top drink with a scoop or two of ice cream.

Enjoy

Hi Lily!

Your drink looks refreshing! Do you think sago pearls would go well in this (ala bubble teas)?

this drink is non-cooking but if you have cooked sago pearls or boba on hand, i am sure it will taste good if added.
