Watermelon smoothie, so refreshing and delicious. Perfect for the hot summer days, it only requires 3 ingredients and it’s ready in just 5 minutes!

Watermelon smoothie is a great way of eating fruit in the summertime. This drink is so tasty and good you’ll want to have it on a daily basis, and it’s perfectly refreshing after a long hot summer day. I really love it!

Although I have posted lots of different smoothie recipes over the years, I specially like this one, as watermelon is so hydrating, as well as high in vitamin C and nutrients. Of course, this smoothie is completely vegan and doesn’t contain cholesterol at all.

I’d recommend you to keep the watermelon in the fridge, although it’s also okay to add some ice cubes when you blend it up. I prefer not to because I like it better without them, but if you’re in a hurry it would work as well! Just remember to always serve it cold.

Watermelon smoothie, a delicious and refreshing drink. It contains so many nutrients and is also beneficial for your health. To make it you only need a blender, watermelon, lime juice, and fresh mint leaves. Enjoy it for breakfast, as a snack, or even as a dessert!

How long will this watermelon smoothie keep?

As this smoothie is made with fresh ingredients, it’s best to serve it immediately or refrigerate for a couple of hours before drinking it. However, if you have lots of leftovers, you can keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 72 hours.

What goes with watermelon smoothie?

This watermelon smoothie is very versatile and you can have it at any time. Feel free to drink it for breakfast, as a dessert or even as a snack, or to customize it with your favorite ingredients.

It would go well with berries, chia seeds, or basil. However, if you’d like a creamier texture, you could add some banana, cashew milk, soy milk, or even coconut milk to it.

Can I make watermelon smoothie with frozen watermelon?

Of course! It’s very important to serve your drink cold, so you could either keep your watermelon in the fridge, add some ice into it or even cut the watermelon in cubes and freeze it before you prepare your smoothie. In that case, it might have a thicker texture, but it’ll be equally delicious!
