Watermelon is a great hydrating choice on these hot and humid days! Try out some of these great tasting watermelon smoothies and ENJOY YOUR LONG WEEKEND!
This one is so easy to prepare yet DELICIOUS!
-cut about 1/4 of a whole watermelon into small cubes and freeze overnight (covered with saran wrap)
-chill your favourite brand of coconut water overnight in the refrigerator
- when ready to prepare just place in the blender on low speed until it is starting to mix together nicely and then crank on high speed until well mixed
-and VOILA thats's it .... will make about 2 6 oz servings
Combine all of the following in the blender
1 cucumber peeled and cut into small pieces
4 cups of watermelon (that has been cut into cubes and froze overnight in the freezer)
1/4 of a fresh mint leaf
1 tablespoon of lemon or lime juice
Blend together starting on low speed until starting to mix together nicely and then finish on high speed until well blended
Follow the exact recipe above but instead of cucumber add 1 cup of fresh strawberries that have thoroughly washed and froze overnight
Follow the exact same WATERMELON-CUCUMBER SMOOTHIE instructions but instead of adding cucumber add 1 cup of fresh pineapple that has been cut into small cubes
1/4 of a fresh watermelon (that has been cut into cubes and froze overnight)
1/2 cup of fresh strawberries (that have been washed and froze overnight)
