Samoan Watermelon Drink

Last summer, we sold food at Provo's 4th of July fair, and our neighbors made this amazing drink. Being 6 months pregnant in 100 degree weather made me fall in love - because it is so cool and refreshing! It really is a unique drink too, with the small chunks of watermelon in it. It may sound strange, but just wait until you try it on a hot day! I don't know exactly what they put in it, but this is pretty close to what I remember it tasting like. It's easy to make, and oh- so good!

PS - Does anyone know what the real name for this is?

Samoan Watermelon Drink

1/2 medium seedless watermelon (1 quart crushed watermelon + juice)
2 1/2 quarts cold water
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 to 1 1/2 cups sugar

1. Cut the fruit out of 1/2 of a medium seedless watermelon. Crush with a potato masher in a large bowl until the watermelon pieces are very small. (You should have about a quart of crushed watermelon, with its juice)
2. Add watermelon to water in a gallon-sized pitcher. (If there are any white seeds, these should float to the top - if you want to remove them, do so now with a small strainer or spoon.)
3. Mix in cream, then stir in sugar to taste.
4. Chill! This drink is best served very cold. Enjoy!


  1. Just made this with Vanilla Almond Milk. Delicious!! ♥ Your Mama
