Watermelon, Yogurt and Mint Smoothie

Jul 24, 2010 by

Okay, I must confess once more: This is NOT Italian. But, it's super tasty and I made it for my Italian boyfriend on his birthday (in Italy, no less!), so...excuses, excuses, I know. But let's get over it already and delight in the yummy goodness of this smoothie: It's fresh, it's tasty, it's unique, and it's a great way to use up the rest of your watermelon on a hot summer day. One warning: The yogurt makes this smoothie very filling; you could easily have this for breakfast and be satisfied for the rest of the morning. Servings: 2 generous portions Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of seeded watermelon chunks
  • 1 T. mint (or more, if you're nuts for mint, like me)
  • 1 cup plain or lemon yogurt
  • Optional: 1 T. honey
  • G-Spot Ingredient: A dash of cinnamon
Puree the watermelon, honey, and mint quickly in a blender. Add in half the yogurt and pulse it a few times. Add in the second half of the yogurt in and mix with a spoon, or pulse once. Pour into cups and mix with a spoon to fully blend. Add a dash of cinnamon on top, and a little watermelon or mint garnish for fun. Note: Watermelon turns to slush really quickly when blended. If you'd like a thin drink, then blend all of the yogurt till you get your desired consistency. But if you'd like something thicker, I think a hand blender would help you keep more control over how liquid you want the watermelon to get, or you can blend the watermelon, and add the yogurt entirely by spoon. Just some thoughts.
