Watermelon and yogurt cooler

casaveneracion.com Watermelon and yogurt cooler

It’s summer in the Northern hemisphere but, here in the tropics, we are smack in the monsoon season. Not that it rains everyday. On the contrary, some days are so warm and humid it’s like summer never went. And nothing beats the heat than a cold drink.

This watermelon and yogurt cooler is a concoction of my daughter, Sam. I just took the photos. Sam did such a wonderful job with the presentation, layering the watermelon puree and yogurt in the glass and arranging a paper umbrella on top. But I was in such a hurry to take photos before the ice melted, I didn’t notice that the umbrella had fallen to the floor (so sorry about that, baby). But with or without the umbrella, the watermelon and yogurt cooler was fantastic. Have to ask Sam to do this more often.

    Lovely photos! I’m sure they’re as fantastic as you’ve described.

    Whenever we buy watermelon, I would slice the whole thing into into portions and freeze some of them (we can’t finish the whole thing in one sitting, there’s only 2 of us at home). Then when we want a slushie, we’ll just get some of the frozen pieces, add some syrup and water, then blitz away.
