Watermelon Sherbet Smoothies

Mark Twain may have described the flavor of a juicy watermelon best by saying, "When one has tasted watermelons, one knows what angels eat" — and he never even sampled one of these frosty smoothies. You may want to consider buying "seedless" watermelon, which has small, white seedpods (instead of black seeds) that are edible and virtually unnoticeable once you blend the melon. For a special touch, serve in tall frosted glasses and top with a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips.
