 Pour into tall glasses and garnish with watermelon slices or mint. Serve immediately.

If you are using  a whole watermelon that you only need few pieces for the cool shake? It’s just as too big for a glass of shake. What are you going to do with the other half left? As you know, watermelon is good as a snack , juice or dessert. Here are some ideas using fresh watermelon.
