It's not a shake and it's not a smoothy. It's got an amazing taste, and it's my latest addiction!

Top Review by Geema

I want to review this twice so that maybe I could give you 10 stars. I will never eat watermelon again......just drink it in this recipe! I made it for my DIL as a treat when she came over yesterday. She isn't eating sugar right now and I used Splenda, which worked just fine. Because I didn't need to dissolve the sugar, I wish I hadn't used the 1/2 cup of water because it did seem a little thinner that I would have liked. I can't wait to make it again and already am planning a trip to the store for more melon. Thank you soooooooo much Mirj!
