Watermelon smoothies

This is super easy! No recipe even needed, but I figured since the children enjoyed the smoothies so much, I'd post about them anyway.
*You can get light coconut milk from Trader Joe's for $.99, in bpa free cans. I just bulk it up with heavy cream, or sometimes even make my own coconut milk.

Food items suggested:
3 cups watermelon (or any melon/ fruit)
1 15oz can coconut milk (can use full fat or light. Make sure to shake it before opening!)
1/3 cup heavy cream (omit for dairy free, and use while can of coconut milk).

Chop watermelon into bite size pieces and freeze. After frozen, stick into a blender with heavy cream and 1/4 can of coconut milk, adding more a little at a time until blender works it in and is running smoothly.

*If you do not care for coconut milk, you can substitute unsweetened almond milk or your preference, but make sure to balance it out with more heavy cream for a fuller and more satiating treat. Same thing goes if you want to omit heavy cream. Add almond or other milk to get blender running smoothie-ly. ;o)
