How do you make Watermelon Smoothie sweeter?
This healthy watermelon recipe has no added sugar, just the one that already contains watermelon.
Watermelon is naturally sweet, so you don’t need to add any type of sugar, which makes it low in calories, and a perfect smoothie recipe for weight loss.
What Fruits mix well with Watermelon Smoothie?
You can also try adding other fruits, vegetables and herbs to this watermelon smoothie recipe.
This will also make it more nutritious, and you can combine it and not always have the same smoothie. Plus, it’s fun to try different combinations!
Watermelon goes really well with banana, strawberry, cucumber, pineapple, mango, mint, chili pepper and ginger.
Banana Watermelon Smoothie
I love plain watermelon smoothie, but if I want to add another fruit, my first option is the banana watermelon smoothie. It’s so creamy and sweet!
Watermelon and banana make a delicious and nutritious combination that’ll also satisfy your sweet tooth. Just add a banana to the recipe (you can add just a ½ if you prefer it less creamy).
Strawberry Watermelon Smoothie
Another option I love is strawberry watermelon smoothie.
Watermelon and strawberry goes really well together!
It’s a perfect combination if you want to add another fresh and seasonal fruit, and this smoothie has a less creamy texture than if you add banana or mango.
This watermelon smoothie is lighter and more refreshing than the banana watermelon smoothie, and it’s perfect for a healthy snack.
Watermelon Pineapple Smoothie
Pineapple is sweet and is very well digested, in addition to having a lot of fiber, so it combines very well with watermelon.
Give it a try and you will see how you love this healthy smoothie recipe with pineapple and watermelon. Plus, it has a tropical touch that will make you think you are on the beach!
Mango Watermelon Smoothie
If you like creaminess but want a watermelon smoothie without banana, mango is a great option.
Mango adds flavor and sweetness, and really elevate the taste.
Watermelon Cucumber Smoothie
Who would have thought that cucumber gets along with watermelon? It really does!
The flavor of this combination of fruit and vegetable will surprise you.
Cucumber has a high percentage of water, just like watermelon, making it the perfect smoothie to cool off on the hottest days of summer.
How to Make the Watermelon Smoothie Recipe
This watermelon smoothie recipe is so easy to make!
It will take literally 2 minutes to prepare this delicious smoothie with watermelon.
All you need is a ripe watermelon, freshly squeezed lime juice (you can use lemon instead if you don’t have lime), ice cubes, and fresh mint leaves (optional).
First, cut the watermelon into chunks.
I add the seeds too, as they have lots of vitamins and fiber, but you can remove them if you want, or buy a seedless watermelon.
I add a few ice cubes to make a kind of frozen watermelon smoothie, as I love the texture, but don’t add too much ice as it could have too much water.
Another option is use frozen watermelon chunks so you don’t have to use ice. I specially love this option and always use frozen fruit to make my breakfast smoothies.
Then, add the lime juice, and some fresh mint leaves if you like the flavor.
Blend it all together and serve immediately.
I use Nutribullet Pro which is a powerful blender (I use it to make all my smoothies there everyday!), perfect to crush the seeds of a seeded watermelon.
And that’s it! That easy!
I hope this easy watermelon smoothie recipe makes you insanely happy!
- 2 1/2 Cups Fresh or Frozen Watermelon, Cubed
