There's nothing better to eat on the beach than watermelon.
Unless, of course, you're in the mood for a watermelon flavored drink or dessert.
If that's the case, here are a few different watermelon recipes that you can create the next time that you go to the beach. They'll help keep you satisfied while you sit under the hot sun.
1. Watermelon Slushies
If you're in the mood for a slurpee from 7/11, but don't want to be unhealthy, then you should make your own slurpee from watermelon that you have in your fridge. This video will show you how. It'll even give you tips for picking the perfect watermelon out from the grocery store. That way, you'll create the most delicious drink possible.
2. Watermelon Cake
You should start by "cutting out a middle segment of the watermelon at a thickness of your choice. Use a mold or knife to remove it from the rind. Then you should cut a 1.5cm segment from the watermelon piece you cut in step 1 and lay it inside the ring of watermelon rind you also made in step 1." After that, you should put it in the refrigerator and start making the mousse!
3. Chocolate Watermelon Pops
For this recipe, you won't need a real watermelon. You'll only need jello that tastes like watermelon. You'll also need chocolate drops, sugar, cream cheese, icing, disposable cups, and popsicle sticks. Once you make your jello by following the instructions on the packet, you should fill the cups with them and then add the rest of the ingredients.
4. Watermelon Cocktail
If you're thirsty for something that tastes like watermelon, you don't have to drink a slurpee. If you're old enough and mature enough to drink alcohol, then you can drink a cocktail instead. Start by opening up your watermelon and scooping out chunks of it to put in a blender. Add some alcohol to it once it's all blended together, and then pour all of that liquid back in your watermelon. You can use it as your bowl! How adorable is that?
5. Watermelon Jelly
There isn't any speaking in this video, so make sure you pay close attention. When you're all finished, you're going to end up with some delicious desserts that you can share with all of your friends and family.
6. Watermelon Passion
Here's another alcoholic drink that you can make with watermelon. All you need is some alcohol, some fruit drinks, and some watermelon chunks. If you don't have the exact drinks they use in the video, don't worry. You can always swap them out for whatever you have at home. It'll probably taste delicious!
7. How to Carve a Watermelon Shark
This isn't exactly a recipe, but it's still pretty cool. All you have to do is grab a watermelon, some grapes, some toothpicks, and a knife. Start by cuttin a diagonal corner off of the melon for it to sit on. Then you should cut a mouth into the front and scoop out some of the melon. After that, you can add details, like a fin and some teeth for your shark.
Now you'll be able to create delicious foods to eat and drinks to sip on the next time you visit the beach. Do you love the taste of watermelon?
