Iced Watermelon Drink (Nam Dang-Mu Pan)

melon-drink.jpg

One of my favorite drinks in Thailand is a melon ice drink, similar to commercial drinks, however this one is made with fresh fruit rather than synthetic flavour and tastes all the better for it.

Ingredients
1-2 Kgs Sindria (Sweet Red Watermelon)
500 gms Ice
2 Thirsty People

Preparation
1. In a food processor blend the ice until it is finely broken up.
2. Chop the red part of the melon. Remove excessive seeds, but it isn't necessary to remove every one.
3. Add the melon chunks to the blender.
4. Blend a little more until the melon is puried and well mixed with the ice.
5. Serve in tall glasses with a straw.
A wondeful simple way to enjoy fresh fruit.
