Chef Erika's Watermelon Shakes

You can call them smoothies, shakes, purees, whatever you like. They've got watermelon as the base, with other fruits and fresh herbs rounding out the flavors.

Watermelon Shakes


  • 1 medium watermelon (seeded, with the rind cut off and flesh cut into chunks)
  • 5 strawberries (or other berries)
  • 10 ground cherries (if available)
  • 3 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 sprig fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 5 ice cubes


  1. Combine all ingredients into the pitcher of a blender, or a food processor. Process until well blended, and ice is crushed. Taste and adjust honey and herbs to taste.
  2. Enjoy immediately.
  3. Note: The list of ingredients and amounts is approximate. Adjust based on what you have available, and on what you prefer.
