It’s currently 30 degrees in London right now and I’m boiling away in the office, a major cool down is needed. All I can seem to think about, and what I am truly craving is, a watermelon shake!
Fresh, sweet and full of water, this is one of my favourite fruits to eat all year round. It is especially loved during these hot summer months- when I can be bothered to lug one home with me on the bus!
So the watermelon shake, what is it and how is it made?
What you will need:
- watermelon, needs to be cut into smaller pieces
- syrup (boil together some water and sugar and allow to cool)
- some water
I personally don’t measure the ingredients, I do it by taste and how greedy I feel that day.
Blitz this in a blender. Taste, add some extra syrup, watermelon or ice if needed and you’re done!
Sometimes, if I have any, I add a couple strawberries into the mix. It tastes delicious and sweet, AND means I’m getting 2 out of my 7 a day!
Likewise, if I happen to have any, I sometimes like to add Boba to the drink. A little spin off to my favourite beverage- bubble tea. Fresh, icy with the surprise of bursting lychee bubbles its a drink I love to drink- especially in this heat.
