Watermelon N Avocado Milkshake

Watermelons can be round, oblong or spherical in shape and feature thick green rinds that are often spotted or striped. Watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A...watermelon is 92% water by weight,because this food has a higher water content and lower calorie content than many other fruits (a whole cup of watermelon contains only 48 calories), it delivers more nutrients per calorie,an outstanding health benefit..Having watermelon while summer will really help to keep ur body in good condition..avocados r also known as butter r alligator pears..The avocado is very popular in vegetarian cuisine, making an excellent substitute for meats in sandwiches and salads because of its high fat content. Avocados also have 60% more potassium than bananas. They are rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin K...mostly avocados r used to prepare the famous Mexican dip Guacamole. Making shakes out of this both fruits was really refreshing, they are absolutely prefect for summer and this both shakes goes to Refreshing Drinks, an event by Anu of Chandrabhaga and to 15 minutes Cooking event by Mahimaa, on the way to Priti's Summer Treat...



1 cup Watermelon pieces(seedless)
1/4cup Condensed sweetened milk
1+1/2 cups Water
1/2 Vanilla extract
Ice cubes

Add watermelon pieces, condensed milk, water n vanilla extract together in a food processor, beat well for a while...no need to drain the shake..serve them immediately with ice cubes....prepare them always fresh, dont keep them in fridge..
