When it’s hot, there is nothing more refreshing than watermelon. And it’s no wonder, because it’s 92% water. Watermelon is a good source of vitamins A and C and is also a source of vitamin B6. It’s a sweet, healthy and delicious way to hydrate. Watermelon also makes a fabulous smoothie and I recently created this version as a yummy, refreshing snack. It’s simple to make, with a blend of fruits and some cucumber which adds to the refreshing flavour, plus provides a bit of a vegetable boost to your day. The cucumber flavour isn’t overpowering but it combines really well with the sweetness and flavour of the watermelon.
This smoothie is the perfect way to boost your fruit and vege intake too!
Here’s how to make the watermelon smoothie
2 cups diced watermelon
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1/4 of a cucumber, peeled and cut into cubes.
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup of water, or you can also use coconut water
2 teaspoons chia seeds
Place all the ingredients in a blender and enjoy as a refreshing drink. This smoothie isn’t filling enough for a meal, but would be a good snack, or accompaniment to a meal.
