Mint Watermelon Smoothie

My favorite way to have watermelon EVER.  It’s not messy, it’s easy to make and beautifully paired with complimenting ingredients, a perfect pick me up after a long day of work or school.  This watermelon smoothie is an awesome refresher on hot, sunny days, made simply with fresh watermelon, lime juice and mint leaves.  Due to the absence of dairy, you might think this looks more like lemonade then a smoothie, but the watermelon’s unique texture when blended makes this drink much more substantial and satiating then lemonade.  I am especially fond of the mint in this recipe.

Watermelon Smoothie

  • 3 cups of cubed Watermelon
  • 1/2 Lime;  juiced
  • 2-3 leaves of fresh Mint
  • a pinch of Salt
  1. This recipe is as simple as it gets.  Before, you start, I recommend washing your fresh produce.
  2. Cut slices of watermelon into cubes until you have the needed amount.
  3. Before juicing, I like to firmly press and roll the lime on my cutting board, which makes it then easier to juice.
  4. Juice the lime.  
  5. Blend all ingredients together with an immersion blender (or food processor) until it forms a uniform mixture without chunks.
  6. Pour into a glass and sip with a wide straw.  You could add 1 or 2 ice cubes into the glass to make this smoothie extra chill, but if you are using a refrigerated watermelon, the ice cubes are not needed.
