A sale on those mini watermelons that are sometimes marketed as “personal watermelons” (because you can probably eat an entire one by yourself!) prompted today’s breakfast smoothie.

At $1.88 each, four of these babies jumped into my cart effortlessly.

What to do with the single one remaining after my son wolfed down three of them?
