I began to make this and realized I didn't have mint (fresh or dried). A quick google search shows that you can substitute basil for mint in sweet dishes, so I tried that. Not too bad! I don't think of basil as a sweet seasoning, but it actually worked out pretty well - I'd do it again. I also used plain yogurt.
Pretty and tasty! Thanks for posting.
Fabulous! I have a bag of watermelon in the freezer left over from last summer. This wasn't the easiest to blend with the frozen watermelon, but it was worth it. I used fat free vanilla yogurt and the juice of half a lemon, plus orange mint. This is tangy and delightful on a hot day. Thanks!
Mmmm! This was a delightful surprise. I had my doubts since my watermelon wasn't very sweet - but this was perfect. Also, I didn't have lemon yogurt on hand so I used vanilla instead - but I can see where a tarter yogurt would provide nice contrast to the watermelon and mint. Was easy to make (good for a non-cook like me). I will definitely be making this for friends. (And probably planting some mint to have on hand for next year...)
What a wonderful exotic tasting smoothie bluemoon. I loved it. What a surprise, I wasn't sure about the combination of watermelon, yogurt and mint. But what a winning combination. Smooth, sweet and refreshing. I also added ice cubes to the smoothie and used an organic honey. I will be making this often, thanks so much for sharing.
Very good and refreshing! Made it just as stated. I love watermelon and the mint is very good with this. Made for Gimme 5 tag.
Wow, what a great smoothie! I halved the recipe and had it for breakfast. I used frozen watermelon cubes and plain yogurt. I make smoothies often and I am happy I found this new recipe.
Followed it except for the honey--it was one sweet watermelon! And a delicious smoothie. I LOVE mint with watermelon, so I knew it would be good! My daughter wants another "milkshake" today!
Mine did not turn out as pretty as the picture, but it was very tasty. The mint and watermelon compliment each other well. I skipped the honey as well, and used peach yogurt. I also added some ice to thicken it up and make it nice and cold. A great refresher after my run!
The yogurt gave this a nice creaminess and the watermelon and mint made it quite cooling! Seeing this has no ice I used partially frozen watermelon which gave this a nice consistency. I did skip the honey I didn`t think it needed any more sweetener.
