Watermelon and Green Tea - James Knight-Pacheco

Many thanks to James Knight-Pacheco for this recipe, which was featured at the Annual Thermomix Demonstrators Conference in May 2011, and in Chef Magazine: "Power blended in the Thermomix, James' ginger-infused Watermelon and Green Tea pre-starter prepared the digestion for the coming feast." It would also be lovely served as a refreshing breakfast juice or as a cooling drink on a hot day. It's very easy and wonderfully delicious. Makes 1.5 litres.
