Indian Summer Watermelon Smoothie
I thought I had all the moves until I met Seema Shah. If you haven’t yet clicked on the video, you’ll see what I mean when you watch it. Seema’s been in Bollywood mega blockbusters such as Dhoom2 and Lage Raho Muna Bhai and now has her own dance troupe called Cree8 Productions. This multi-talented girl decided to share her father’s famous Watermelon Smoothie recipe. I can attest that it got me ready to “bale bale” across the kitchen. There are a number of variations you can do to this drink (try using coconut ice cream instead of vanilla bean). Share a variation you think might taste great in the comments section below!
1 1/2 cups watermelon
1 cup ice
1/2 cup ice cream (vanilla bean, coconut, or whatever you’d like to try)
1/4 cup milk (or substitute milk alternative)
Seeds of 4-5 cardamoms crushed (no skin)
1/8 tsp rosewater
A shot of rum (optional)
1. Combine all ingredients in a blender
2. Blend for 30 seconds-1 minute (or until you get the desired texture)
3. Pour into a glass of your choice, garnish with watermelon or mint, serve and enjoy!
