Watermelon Float

| Drinks and Smoothies

IMG_4056As a child I used to love cream soda floats….Whenever we were at a restaurant I would order one.  As I grew up though, I realised that:

  1. Cream soda is a sugar-filled, nutritionally pointless drink
  2. Dairy ice cream is very high in cholesterol – a problem which my whole family struggles with due to a genetic defect

So I stopped having it regularly:(  But then!  I discovered this wonderful, healthy coconut vanilla ice cream and started thinking of all the wonderful ways I could use it….I immediately thought of recreating  my childhood favourite drink and since I had a ton of frozen watermelon in my freezer, I ended up with a deliciously healthy watermelon float!



Place frozen watermelon into you food processor and pulse until chopped into smaller pieces.  Now process, scraping intermittently, until you have a drinkable icy watermelon slushy.  Add small amounts of water at a time while processing to help you achieve a thinner texture.  Add sweetener to taste.  Pour into a glass and plop a big blob of coconut vanilla ice cream on top.

      Great idea! Both the ice cream and watermelon keep well when frozen for months – so why not?!If the ice cream is a little hard when you take it out of the freezer, just zap it in the microwave for 15 secs at a time until it is scoopable:)
