it's been raining for the past few weeks...
i feel like New England is taking on some of the characteristics of a closely named Country that receives an exhorbitant amount of rain...
don't get me wrong, i love the rain for several reasons....
1. the splash that each raindrop makes when it hits a deck, roof, puddle, umbrella, etc.
2. the chance to wear puddle boots!!
3. a time to use that favorite umbrella
4. and then of course the reminder of special memories....what comes to mind when you
see or hear someone say "raindrops on roses..."????
|this is what always comes to my |
mind first :}
2 1/4 cups frozen watermelon cubes
1/2+ cup water
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 large lemon, squeezed (lime juice also works very well! use 2 limes)
1 fresh banana
optional: a few dashes of cayenne powder in the blender or over top when you serve!
Garnish: a few slices of watermelon - with rind on - frozen.
Blend Pour. Garnish with frozen watermelon/rind slices. Serve! Enjoy.
Blending Tip! The best way to blend up this frosty is in a Vitamix - it really frosts up that thick frozen watermelon!
