This healthy watermelon smoothie celebrates the fresh fruits and herbs of the summer season and tastes so refreshing.

I love buying local fresh produce in season. Not only does it keep things interesting with our meals, but it also gives our bodies a bit more diversity nutritionally. And, if you can buy from local farmers, it helps to reduce the carbon footprint and supports your local economy too! Win…Win!!

In every smoothie I create, I look for a balance of good fiber from fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and protein.

What You’ll Need:

  • Fruit – Watermelon & Blueberries
  • Fresh Herbs & Greens – Arugula, Mint & Basil
  • Lime
  • Avocado
  • Protein Powder
  • Chia Seeds (optional)
  • Cucumber (optional)

Making the Recipe:

First, cut up the watermelon and cucumbers (if including). You’ll also want to slice a lime to squeeze for fresh lime juice.

Next, you’ll add all of the ingredients to a high speed blender or Nutri Bullet and blend until smooth. It’s that easy!

Notes
