Street Food Series: Watermelon Brain Freeze

photo_2

This week marks the beginning of my Street Food Series. It just seems like a timely topic to explore as the temperature in London has been rising steadily. I’m already a huge fan of markets whether they be food, flower or bric-a-brac. Food Markets in London tend to be located off back streets and down narrow alleyways or ironically behind corporate buildings and High Street shops; this is quite telling as Food Markets in general are counter this culture – there is no uniformity, no two markets are the same. You can go to an Indian Food Festival and not one stall will sell the exact same dish, in exactly the same way…I find heaps of inspiration from these places. I also love the hustle and bustle of it all, you can strike up a conversation with just about anyone as you wait in the queue for a Mango and Almond Lassi. And there is no shame in asking a complete stranger: “What’s that your eating?”

To start the proceedings, I thought I would just share with you a very simple refreshing drink which I had for breakfast this morning in fact. I froze the fruit over night in freezer bags already chopped up into pieces and in portions so that I just emptied the contents into the blender with some honey and water. From the first slurp, my brain kicked into gear; it was a brain freeze like from my childhood but I loved it! Really tasty and healthy way to start the morning.

 

Watermelon Brain Freeze

 

Ingredients:

2 cups Watermelon (frozen cubes)

1 cup water

2 ripe Bananas (frozen sliced)

1 tbsp Honey (or maple syrup)

 

Method:

Place all the ingredients above in a blender, and pulse the blender before putting it on full speed to create a smooth drink. You should have a smooth mixture that you can scoop out, you can always add a little more water if you like it runny.
