Frozen watermelon is my secret ingredient for creating the best healthy DIY ice cream ever. The reason why I use frozen watermelon in this recipe too is because frozen melon has a unique frosty texture that creates the perfect healthy ice cream texture and flavor. Frozen bananas are nice and creamy, but the watermelon adds frostiness to give your shake some body. Watermelon and banana are both naturally sweet and perfect for creating a healthy shake treat.
