Not only can watermelon be sliced and diced, but it can be made into a sweet, frozen treat like this Watermelon Collagen Creamsicle. Creamy and rich with minimal clean up, it's quick to make and can leave your taste budds tingling. Take it to go in a portable cup or enjoy it fresh at home. Throw your favorite liquor in the mix and, voila, it's adult-friendly. Charleston is crawling with spirit makers from High Wire to Striped Pig to Charleston Distilling to Virgil Kaine to Firefly to Cannon Distillery... the list goes on.
2 cups cubed watermelon, soaked in your spirit of choice or not depending
2 rounded tablespoons collagen
2 tablespoons heavy cream
In blender, combine watermelon, collagen and heavy cream; blend. Poor into glass to serve. Reminder to be 21 or older to imbibe... not our party-pooping rule, it's the law.
