Watermelon Smoothie

The perfect fix to quench your thirst on a hot day. And definitely a healthier choice than your regular fruit juice.


Bonus point, it takes less than 5 minutes to make this refreshing drink.

Ingredients:

  • 200mL - 1 glass of fresh coconut water

  • 200-300g of watermelon flesh, cut into cubes (remove the seeds) - frozen for 3 hours or overnight

  • 1/2 tablespoon of lime or lemon zest

  • A few leaves of fresh mint (for presentation)



Method:

  1. Place all ingredients into your blender

  2. Blend for less than 1 minute.

  3. Pour into 1 or 2 glasses. Add 1-2 leaves of fresh mint for decoration. And it's ready!

You will get a big glass or 2 regular glasses out of this recipe :)


Tip for texture: The less you blend the smoothie, the thicker it will be. The more you blend it, the more it will have a juice like consistency. So you can adapt according to your preferences.
