Watermelon Mint Smoothie

It's definitely watermelon season! By this I mean you can find good seedless watermelons in the grocery stores that are bright pink inside and super tasty (and not cost $10 for a small container). I had a big watermelon that I finally got around to chopping up and ended up with so much that I had a huge container in the refrigerator in the basement and another one in my kitchen. I wanted to find a way to use some of the watermelon up so I thought, why not toss it in my smoothie? A perfect new blend of fruits and veggies that tastes like summer.  

Here's what I mixed together:

  • About 2 cups watermelon cubes
  • 1/2 english cucumber
  • 2 limes (no skins)
  • Handful of fresh mint
  • Splash of flax milk
  • 1-2 cups of power greens (mix of chard, spinach, baby kale)
  • Water
  • 1 Tbsp chia (Mila)

I added the greens to my Vitamix first with water and blended those up. Next I added everything else and then tasted it along the way to see if I needed more cucumber or mint until it was a burst of freshness in my mouth!

This is an easy way to use your watermelon and get some great nutrition from greens. Let me know how you like to use your watermelon or what's in your smoothie. And share this recipe with a friend!
