Watermelon Smoothie

Sharing is caring!

This watermelon smoothie is an excellent choice if you’re looking to stay fresh and hydrated with its natural abundance of H2O. It has a mild but sweet and creamy flavor with the addition of bananas, Greek yogurt and a touch of honey. Strawberries add a deeper red color and the lime juice adds some zip. It’s a perfect alternative to snacking on the fruit on a hot day if you’re looking for something a little more chilled and sipworthy.

Ingredients

Watermelon smoothie ingredients prepped on black background.
  • water – You can substitute with juice or milk but it might drown out the mild flavor of the watermelon.
  • lime juice – Adds a bit of zip to the smoothie.
  • honey – I add honey because it isn’t quite sweet enough for me without it but feel free to omit it if that’s not the case for you.
  • Greek yogurt – I like a creamy smoothie and Greek yogurt is so velvety and thick, making it a nice addition to the smoothie.
  • frozen seedless watermelon – I normally buy my fruit pre-frozen from the supermarket, but in the case of watermelon, I have yet to find a brand that uses nicely ripe, sweet, red watermelon. It’s usually lacking in color and flavor so I like to buy it fresh, especially when they are on sale, and then chop and freeze it myself.
  • frozen strawberries – For extra color and flavor. Choose strawberries that are medium size.
  • frozen banana slices – The bananas also add sweetness and creaminess and it’s a great way to use up bananas that are starting to brown, if you’re getting tired of a banana bread. Simply slice and freeze them on a cookie sheet.

One of the main benefits that probably comes to mind when thinking of a watermelon is how hydrating it is. And you would be correct, because it is made up of 92% water. I can’t think of a sweeter, more satisfying way to quench your thirst.
