After yoga this morning, all I wanted was something cold and cleansing. I remembered my frozen watermelon...the pink frosty cubes were practically begging to be blended into a refreshing blush-colored slurry. Too, I was desiring tropical flavors like pineapple and coconut...(fifteen years ago we went to Maui and loved it). This bowl is the result of a heat-full yoga session and the memory of five days on a Hawaiian island. It is delightful.
"Each spoonful is cooling, fresh and sweet. I adore this bowl!"
Notes: Coconut is unsweetened.

1. Place a bowl in the freezer. Process or blend the watermelon, yogurt, and 1/2 cup of pineapple. Mixture should be thick and smooth.
