Just like bein on a cruise! Our favourite treat!i
Hmmm – a shot of rum in it and that’s a right nice refresher after a long hot day at work.
It was very good! Everyone was pleasantly surprised by the flavor profile. I didn’t have coconut flakes or extract on hand, so used a whole can of coconut milk (about 2 extra Tbs) and added an extra squeezed lime for juice and a few pinches of salt to help develop the flavors. Served chilled as an appetizer in a shot glass with a tiny sprigs of mint on top, it was supremely refreshing and very well received for a summer gathering, with tropical vibes thanks to the lime and the coconut.
(Note: I skipped the blueberry topper as I was going for more of an appetizer than dessert flavor profile. Did not at all miss it!)
Overall a SUPER easy recipe:
1 mini watermelon
1 13.5 oz can coconut milk
1 lime’s zest
2 limes’ juice
3 pinches of salt
Next time I might try the blender instead of a food processor, for a more pureed blend.
