Watermelon Smoothie Breakfast

(Adapted from a recipe by my Hubby man)

Kolkata is burning hot! Hot blazing days are followed sweltering nights. During such a heat wave, the digestive system goes for a toss and the appetite is low. 

My hubby man makes this wonderful smoothie using watermelon. A glass of this chilled smoothie, acts like a breakfast if you are not in a mood to have any cooked breakfast per se. This smoothie can be savoured at any part of the day.

Just look at this lovely light pink color.

Here is how he makes it:


Chopped watermelon: 1 medium bowl full
Yoghurt/curd: 1 cup
Glucon D or Tang (Orange Flavor) powder: 2 tablespoons
A pinch of salt
Sugar: 2 teaspoon
Crushed ice (optional)
Cumin (Jeera) powder: 1/2 teaspoon

For garnish: Mint leaves (optional)


1. Take a medium bowl full of watermelon and de-seed the pieces.

2. Take the Glucon D powder and watermelon in a big bowl.

 3. Add chilled curd and mix well with a spatula. Also add salt, sugar, and cumin powder.
 4. Blend the mixture using a hand blender. You can also add crushed ice and mix in a mixer.
Voila! Your chilled smoothie is ready. You can also keep it in the fridge for a few minutes before consuming.

I am sending this recipe to the Kolkata Food Bloggers event "Summer Splash: Coolers" for this week.
