If you want to make this drink more fun and kid-friendly, you can serve it in a hollowed-out watermelon shell. Simply cut off the top of a small watermelon, scoop out the flesh, and use it as a serving vessel. You can also add some fun straws or cocktail umbrellas for a festive touch.
If you want to make a larger batch of this drink, you can double or triple the recipe and store it in the fridge until ready to serve. However, keep in mind that the texture may change slightly when stored, so it’s best to blend it again before serving.
If you want to make this drink even healthier, you can add some chia seeds or flax seeds for extra fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. You can also add some protein powder or collagen powder for an extra boost of nutrients.
