Ingredients
  1. 4 cups watermelon, chopped with rind removed
  2. 1/2 tsp fresh ginger
  3. 1/2 small lemon or lime with peel
  4. 10 blackberries, fresh or frozen
  5. 4-6 ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in Vitamix and set to Variable 1. Slowly turn up to Variable 10, then kick up to High. Blend for 30-45 seconds. Serve with a spring of mint on top...if you're fancy.
Notes
  1. There's so much water/juice already in watermelon that you shouldn't need to add any water, but if the recipe is coming out too thick, feel free to add a little liquid to thin it out. Also, experiment with lime vs. lemon to see which you prefer. Lime will give it more of a tropical taste, where lemon will be brighter with stronger citrus notes.
