I bought a big watermelon a week or so ago. I kept putting off cutting it because there just wasn't room in our refrigerator to handle the leftovers.
Finally, I decided to cut it up, remove the seeds, put it in the blender and make a watermelon drink.
I remembered making a watermelon drink last year. I remembered that it was delicious. Unfortunately, I didn't remember that there was something besides watermelon in the recipe. I wish I had read my watermelon smoothie post from last July. I forgot about strawberries.
It's pretty tasty actually, but I do think it would be better with the strawberries. It will be even better when I am using one of the watermelons from our garden. They are only babies right now.
UPDATE: I added strawberries and mango to my last quart jar of watermelon juice and put it back through the blender. Ohhhh - yummy! ...much better than plain watermelon (which wasn't at all bad). The original recipe didn't call for mango, but I just tossed it in on a whim. Mango seems to go with everything.
