Watermelon Coconut Froth

This drink is creamy, refreshing, and sweet, without being too sweet. Watermelon is the richest source of lycopene, a phytonutrient that might help lower cancer risk. This smoothie packs a lycopene wallop with up to 20 milligrams of lycopene per cup!

  • 2 cups watermelon chunks
  • 1/3 cup light coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 - 4 ice cubes

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. To rim the glasses, dip the rim in water and then in loose coconut flakes.


Makes 3 drinks.
