Watermelon Frosty. There is nothing like an ice cold beverage on a hot summer day.  If you love watermelon like we do, you will find that this is a refreshing way to have the taste of watermelon in a drink. Oh so refreshing!!!

Watermelon has always been one of my favorite foods. I was thinking how watermelon has changed over the years. We never had a seedless watermelon when I was growing up. I’m assuming that they did not exist, but I don’t know.

One of the most vivid memories I have of watermelon was a Children’s parade that we had every year that was connected to our county fair. We would dress up like Pioneers or Farmers or Cowboys or whatever profession that we wanted or sometimes we decorated our wagon and pulled it with our dolls or stuffed animals in it.

Sometimes we even pulled our wagon with our dog or cat in it (I’m surprised that they stayed in there, now as I think about it). Anyway, we had a parade through the small town that I lived nearby.

We walked about a mile and a half. At the end we got a shiny quarter and all the watermelon that we could eat. That watermelon was so good after walking the parade route!

A watermelon frosty would have tasted so good at the end of that parade. But good old fashioned watermelon was pretty good too and easier for the parade officials to get!

What is the Best Way to Pick a Watermelon?

  • Pick the watermelon up: whether it is big or small, the watermelon should feel heavy for its size.
  • Look for the yellow spot on the watermelon: watermelons develop a splotch where they rest on the ground. When this splotch is creamy yellow, it’s ripe.
  • Give the watermelon a thump: Tap the underbelly of the watermelon. The best watermelon will have a slightly hollow, low pitch sound that resembles a drum or a knock on the door.
