I LOVE smoothies! I mean LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! What’s not to like?? They’re quick, easy, and chock-full with the nutrients. For the past 3 years, I’ve tried a ton of smoothie recipes, from Peach Pie to Red Cabbage with blueberries (it was terrible; do not try!) Let’s just say a lot has been learned from trial and error. One of my family’s favorite smoothies is actually a Nia original, Watermelon Smoothie. The idea surfaced because my family loves to buy watermelon, but it’s very hard to consistently purchase good ones. They’re often too ripe or bitter, and no one wants to eat it. That’s when my grandma gave me the idea to, instead of throwing the unwanted watermelon away, use it in smoothies. After a few experiments, a recipe was crafted that everyone loved! We love how unique and refreshing it is! I love to make it when I’m in a rush, but still want a filling, healthy start to my day. Here’s the recipe and enjoy!
Put the watermelon cubes in the blender. Add just enough of the water to touch the bottom of the blender and the watermelon. Blend together. If your cubes are too big, they will not blend, so make sure they are a decent size and are touching the blades. Once blended, the watermelon should be relatively watery. When I use seeded watermelon, I like to put the smoothie through a strainer to remove the chopped seeds. Definitely makes the drink easier to consume, but doesn’t really affect the taste. Add the yogurt and blend. This will make the smoothie heartier. Add optional strawberries and bananas and flaxseeds. These are my favorite additions to Watermelon smoothies, however, the drink still tastes great without. Drink immediately or keep in the fridge for a maximum of two days. A few hours prior to making, the smoothie might need another go in the blender to remix the ingredients.
That’s it! Usually, Not Just Another Blog includes a Handy Dandy Summary to further condense the instructions, but this recipe doesn’t need any more simplification. Hope you enjoy!!
