Coconut Watermelon Banana Milkshake

It’s hot out.  It was hot out yesterday and it’s still hot out today.  Unlike yesterday, however, I wasn’t wearing a heart monitor so I could get in the water.  Today’s water adventure took place at Assateague National Seashore, one of my very favorite places on earth.

After about 4 hours in the sun jumping waves, walking, and watching ghost crabs, we were ready to go home, after a quick stop for ice cream for the others in my family since I’m the only vegan.  You might think I would be jealous.  Nah.  I had this to come home to:

And this is a Coconut Watermelon Banana Milkshake.  Long name but darn good drink on a hot day like today!

Coconut Watermelon Banana Milkshake  Serves 2 (one if you’re really hot!)

1 cup fresh watermelon, chopped

1-2 cups coconut milk ice cream, coconut flavor

1-2 tbsp fresh lime juice

2 frozen bananas, broken into pieces

In your blender contraption (mine is a Vitamix) put the watermelon, the ice cream, and then lime juice.  Blend it until mostly combined.  Then add the frozen bananas and watch the color change a bit and things get nice and creamy.

Very quickly mine became

I wasn’t jealous of that ice cream stop at all.  This was good!

I’m linking this to Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays.  This is definitely better for you than a traditional milkshake with all the fruit and you could make your own coconut ice cream to decrease the sugar even more!
