WATERMELON PINA COLADA

So for my final watermelon post on FTY from the National Watermelon Promotion Board series of recipes, here is a watermelon pina colada drink for you! This is a non-alcoholic take on the traditional pina colada.  Perfect for those that just want a refreshing summer drink without the kick of alcohol. This is a recipe that I will definitely keep on hand for the future. Cheers again!

This is the 6th installment of watermelon recipes. Brought to you by the National Watermelon Promotion Board.
