  1. Cut the watermelon into quarters and cut the flesh away from the skin. Saving some thin slices for garnish, chop the flesh into chunks and purée in a blender or processor or grate it with a fork so it has quite a rough texture.
  2. Stir in the coconut milk. Pour into a large jug, cover with clingfilm and chill for at least 30 mins.
  3. Serve in glasses, over ice, add drinking straws and garnish with slices of watermelon.
