This is what happened — I had cut up a watermelon about 1.5 weeks earlier and the dang watermelon was mealy! The week before I had the Whole Foods produce guy help me pick out the perfect watermelon. I was so excited to pick out another perfect one the next week, but what do I pick? A dang mealy one! It was all nicely cut up sitting in the refrigerator but I just don’t have it in me to eat mealy fruit. Mealy fruit is a huge pet peeve of mine. On Sunday morning I was making my grocery list and came across a recipe I had book marked months before from What’s Cookin’ with Mary? I decided to look through her recipe index and spotted this recipe. It looked so easy and I had everything on hand — PERFECT! While David was sleeping I made this delicious concoction. I was hopping the sound of the blender would wake him up but no such luck. When he finally did arise I told him to try it. He’s not a huge fan of mint and already was turning his nose up. Well, no surprise there, he was not a fan of the mint. I figure it just means more for me.
Watermelon Agua Fresca
from What’s Cookin’ with Mary?
1 medium seedless watermelon, cut into chunks
9 mint leaves
1. Combine watermelon and mint in a blender and blend until smooth. Add in additional ingredients if necessary. Serve over ice and garnish with mint.
*My watermelon was really sweet so I didn’t need to add in the water or sugar.
