watermelon smoothie for a delightful summer

As summer slowly moves towards its hottest weeks, I can think only of fruits, coolants and yummy ice creams, kulfi and faloodas…an endless list of summer goodies. The divine fruit mango is everyone’s obsession, blend it with yogurt to make smoothie or lassi or deep freeze it to make delightful sorbet, our very own mango kulfi makes me drool, and the raw mango drink, known as aam ka panna flavoured with fennel is definitely a thirst quencher.

Last week I had this musk melon smoothie, though I am not a huge fan of musk melon but when blended with honey and peach ice-cream, it was definitely a worthy try. Now, it is a simple fact that if you add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to a smoothie, it bound to taste good, the inevitable taste of delectable ice cream in a smoothie is just enough to make a simple fruit juice to a savoury one.

So when I blend watermelon juice with a scoop of honey and peach ice cream (you can use any flavour) and a little yogurt (any vanilla flavoured yogurt), it transforms into a savoury smoothie, I served along with bright pink colored watermelon chunks, and it was simply out of this world. Try the recipe to experience the divine taste.

Whisk the watermelon juice, ice cream and yogurt till you get a silky smooth consistency, sugar or simple syrup is optional, can be replaced with honey also.
