Today I’m sharing another new favorite smoothie recipe – a refreshing watermelon smoothie!
Don’t you love the pretty pink color?!
When I first started seeing recipes for watermelon smoothies this summer, I was a little skeptical. First, I’m not a huge melon fan. Watermelon is the only melon I really enjoy. Second, the idea of watermelon in a smoothie just didn’t sound like it would work. Clearly, I eventually tried it and found a combination that I love! The strawberries add a little extra sweetness, the yogurt adds the perfect amount of creaminess to make it more like a smoothie and less like an icey drink, and the watermelon and ice make it very refreshing on a hot summer day.
• 2.5 cups of watermelon (cubed)
• 1 cup strawberries (de-stemmed)
• ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
• 1 tbsp. honey
• 1 cup ice
1) Place all of the ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth. With a Vitamix, start off on a low speed and gradually increase the speed.
*Note – you can use vanilla greek yogurt instead of plain, just omit the honey.
