STEPS TO MAKE IT:

1. Gather the ingredients.

2. Cut the watermelon into small chunks of about 1/2 inch square. This size will be easier to blend into the smoothie. Reserve a few wedges, rind included, for the garnish.

3. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper. Place the fresh-cut watermelon on the cookie sheet, leaving space between the pieces. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 1 hour. If preparing the watermelon in advance for smoothies later in the week, once frozen, transfer to plastic storage bags and freeze in 3-cup portions until ready to use.

4. Once frozen, measure 3 cups of frozen watermelon and place in a blender. Top the fruit with milk, yogurt, and maple syrup. Blend until smooth.

5. Serve the watermelon smoothies immediately in chilled glasses. Garnish with a wedge of watermelon and fresh mint, if desired.
