Watermelon Protein Punch

On a hot summer day, it is great to have something cool and healthy. I made a drink using watermelon and which is rich in protein too. I am not sure if you guys noticed or not but I try to add little protein to most of the dishes that I make with items like edamame, beans, chickpeas, paneer etc., This time I tried with Soy Milk. I love soy milk. It has a kind of nutty taste and vanilla flavor is out of this world. I don't drink milk and had tough time during my pregnancy. That is when I started drinking soy milk and never quit as I fell in love with it. I make this drink with various fruits like mango, orange, cherries etc., So lets make one:


2 cups chopped watermelon
1 banana chopped
2 cups light soy milk vanilla flavor (I used Silk)
2 - 3 tbsp honey
1 tsp sugar

Blend them all together in a blender. Pour it into a glass. Top it with watermelon pieces and have it chilled. This is going to Bee & Jai of Jugalbandi who are hosting AFAM (A Fruit A Month).

Thanks to all for taking time to drop by my blog. Soy milk sure is healthy and I am trying to make use of it in many of my recipes that call for milk. It adds a little protein to vegetarians like me.
