Watermelon smoothies are a great healthy way to stay cool and refreshed this summer. They are very simple to make and you can vary them up quite a bit. These smoothies are also the perfect way to use up all that extra watermelon that’s left when you buy a big one. Here’s how to make these simple smoothies.
Start by cutting some of the watermelon into bite sized chunks. Make sure the rind is off and you remove any seeds. Now you’re ready to work on your smoothie.
- 3 cups watermelon chunks
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (option)
- 1 tsp lemon or lime juice
- sugar to taste if needed
Put everything into your blend and blend until smooth. If the watermelon is good and ripe you should not need any extra sugar. It should also provide enough moisture to turn this into a deliciously creamy smoothie. If the mixture seems a bit dry, add a splash of milk or fruit juice to thin it out.
You can also leave out the yogurt if you prefer and just increase the watermelon chunks to 4 cups.
