Lay a few sheets of paper towel down on a flat surface. Lay the trash bag over the paper towels and proceed to tape down all four corners of the trash bag. This will ensure that the trash bag does not move during the process as well as help with clean up at the end.
Step 2: Cut the base of the hanger in half at each corner. Fold base of hanger in half, it should look like a U shaped and approximately 6 inches in length.
Take cut ends of hanger and twist together so that it’s easier to slide into the drill. Place twisted end into center of the open end of the drill, aka the chuck. With one hand holding the hanger in place in the chuck, use your free hand to twist the black grip until it tightens and clicks to hold the hanger in place.
Take the sharp knife and cut a thumb-sized hole into the watermelon until you can see the inside of the watermelon. CAUTION: knife will be very sharp so handle with care!
Hold the drill vertically inside the thumb sized hole. Hold drill trigger firm enough so drill is on highest speed (or a speed you are comfortable with) and begin to slowly twist your wrist and mix thoroughly for 45 seconds to a minute, or until the watermelon has been completely mixed. CAUTION: Make sure not to drill through the other end of the watermelon. This is the step that will mix the watermelon into a smoothie so proceed with care.
Take 1 small solo cup and cut the cup down the middle vertically so it’s now in half. Make sure to cut the top base off to form a spout
Use the sharp knife to make the thumb sized hole large enough to form around the spout, aka the cut.
Decorate watermelon with the sharpie to customize it to make it a funny face!
Pour Smoothie into cup and enjoy!
