Robert Irvine's Grilled Watermelon Mint Smoothie
Give Your Smoothie a Hint of Smoke
This unusual smoothie uses grilled fruit for an added depth of flavor.
Preheat a grill to high heat (400 degrees F).
To grill the watermelon, first sprinkle with the sugar and salt. Grill quickly, cooking each side for 2 minutes and flipping with a wide spatula. Once the watermelon is cooked, remove from the grill and add to a blender, along with the yogurt, apple juice, ice, honey and vanilla. Puree until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Finally, add the mint leaves, pulse 5 to 6 times and serve. Garnish with watermelon wedges and mint.
