Points To Observe:
As watermelon contains lot of water do not add ice to chill the smoothie---instead freeze the watermelon pieces and use. Similarly chill strawberry pieces and banana slices also.
Banana adds body to the smoothie. Strawberries provide nice pink color along with a mild flavor. Vanilla ice cream gives smoothness and rich taste to the smoothie. For variation, use strawberry ice cream.
Watermelon strawberry smoothie is a nice filling drink on a hot summer afternoon which is enjoyed by all age groups.
