This is a unique way to serve in-season watermelon! Use seedless watermelon. One medium seedless watermelon yields at least 6 cups of watermelon cubes. Use less lime juice and slightly more crushed ice for a thicker treat. The chocolate chips will “sink” if the smoothie is too “thin”.
3 cups fresh watermelon cubes
1 cup crushed ice
1 cup watermelon, raspberry or lime sherbet
4 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 cup miniature semisweet or white chocolate chips
About 10 minutes before you’re ready to mix the smoothies, place four tall glasses in the freezer to frost. Then wash the whole melon as you would
other fruits and vegetables, and cut it into quarters. (The number of quarters you’ll need to yield 3 cups of cubes will depend on the size of the melon.)
Slice each quarter you plan to use lengthwise into three wedges, then slice the flesh away from the rind. Use a fork to scrape away the seeds and chop the melon into cubes.
Combine the crushed ice, watermelon cubes, lime juice and watermelon, raspberry, or lime sherbet, and blend until smooth.
Pour the mixture into the frosted glasses and top each one with a half dozen or so miniature chocolate chips. Serves 4.
