I really wanted to have the entire content of this post be, "MAKE THIS SMOOTHIE!! Then I'd just share the recipe (if you can even call this a recipe) and leave it at that. I feel as if the color, juiciness, sweetness and simplicity of this smoothie speaks for itself and I want everyone to make it.
It's that good!
This Watermelon Smoothie really is The Easiest Watermelon Smoothie. I'm not claiming to have invented this smoothie. Duh. But it has become one of Brett and my favorite warm weather drinks and I wanted to share it with you all incase you've never tried it before. My obsession with this drink began a couple of years ago when Brett and I were making our first trip to China together to decide which city we wanted to live in. We would often order fresh Watermelon Smoothies (or juice) with our breakfast because they were so incredibly cheap and refreshing. Ever since that trip a Watermelon Smoothie or juice has always been my go-to fruit drink.
Now that spring has arrived here, the price of watermelon has dropped significantly. I bought one the other day for $1.50!
Basically, Brett and I are going to be making this Watermelon Smoothie often. Why wouldn't we when it requires just one ingredient (bet you can't guess...) and a few minutes to prepare. If you haven't tried making your own Watermelon Smoothie, I really hope you can give it a try soon. You'll love it, I'm sure! If you give it a try, let me know your thoughts or take a picture and tag #theconscientiouseater on Instagram so I can see your creation!
- 5 cups cubed watermelon
- If your watermelon isn't seedless, start by removing all the black seeds.
