The watermelon flavor is subtle, and the lime is a zingy, refreshing complement, making this the best picnic milkshake ever. Try to find the ripest, juiciest, and sweetest watermelon around. If you are using a watermelon with seeds, try to pick out most of them, but leaving a few is OK; they will get chopped up and lend a pretty, black speckle to the shake.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 3-to 5-pound watermelon
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 3 medium limes)
  • 12 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 4 paper-thin lime slices

DIRECTIONS

Remove the rind from the watermelon and cut the fruit into enough 1-inch pieces to measure 4 cups and enough 1/4-inch pieces to measure 2 cups.

Blend the 4 cups of watermelon with the sugar, salt, and lime juice until the watermelon is completely liquid. Add the ice cream and blend until it is just combined.

Stir in the 2 cups of smaller watermelon pieces.

Pour into glasses and garnish with a lime wedge.
