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 all year ’round. And nothing beats the heat like 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.
