Watermelon Shake


One more day!!! :) Final preparations have begun. I've managed to clean out the fridge of any and most perishables. So that's one thing I don't have to worry about when I'm gone. Constantly checking that list to make sure I've done everything I needed to do.

I sort of had a craving for some kind of shake. But I was also craving for some kind of shaved ice. Last week, the weather in LA was very summery. The last couple days has been on the slight dreary side. Don't get me wrong. I love those cloudy days. I figured I'd bring a little summer into my home with a slightly shake-shaved ice hybrid. All you need is watermelon, evaporated milk, sugar, and...of course, ice. All you have to do is blend it all together. I put about 1 tablespoon of sugar as I don't want it to be too sweet. But you can adjust it to your liking. The consistency of a milk shake, but with shaved ice.

Serves 2



Watermelon Shake


1 5oz can evaporated milk
1 c watermelon - seeded
1 dozen ice cubes
2 Tbsp sugar


Combine everything together until blended.

Watermelon is the only food I don't like! What's wrong with me? This looks to pretty not to want to gobble up, or power down. Ohhhh, I just got a cold headache thinking about it! GREG

Hope you have a great time, Jenn. Your shake does look perfect for a summer-like spring day! :)

wonderful - like a perfect treat to prepare yourself for the tropical islands - I've been big into the tapioca balls lately - maybe some of those at the bottom. Love to suck them through the straw =)
