Ingredients

  • 1 watermelon
  • 500g plain double thick yoghurt or 2 Tins Coconut Cream
  • 250g frozen blueberries
  • 200g strawberries
  • Ice
  • Edible flowers, to garnish

Directions

  1. Place the watermelon down on your work surface (like a rugby ball). Cut the watermelon in half.
  2. Reserve the one half for slicing and enjoying on the beach or next to the pool.
  3. Turn the other half around on its root side with the cut part facing up. Using a spoon remove the watermelon flesh so that you have a hollow watermelon shell.
  4. Blend together the reserved watermelon, yoghurt, blueberries and strawberries with some ice.
  5. Pour the smoothie into your carved watermelon and if there is extra, pour that into a serving jug or glasses.
  6. It all depends on the size of the watermelon.
  7. Serve with extra ice and garnish with edible flowers.

Notes

For a Vegan option – use a dairy-free milk alternative (ie: Coconut or Almond Milk) with some chia seeds to get the thickness.
