Guest Recipe: Kacie's Strawberry & Watermelon Smoothie

Packed with juicy watermelon and ripe strawberries, this strawberry and watermelon smoothie makes for a delicious way to cool down on a hot day. Serve in tall glasses or pour into a baby watermelon for an exotic finishing touch.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes

Serves: 2

Category: Smoothies

Ingredients

  • 300g watermelon (see notes)
  • 200g fresh strawberries
  • 1 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 sprig fresh mint

Method

  1. Hull and halve the strawberries and add them to a blender.
  2. Add the watermelon, lime juice and honey and pulse until combined. Aim for a smooth consistency that’s neither too thick nor too runny. Don’t overdo it - it only takes around 10 seconds in a NutriBullet, but it could take a little longer in regular blenders. 
  3. Pour the smoothie mixture into the glasses or baby watermelon, decorate with fresh mint leaves and add straws. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Watermelon: if serving your smoothie inside a baby watermelon, you can scoop out the flesh (an ice cream scoop is handy for this), weigh out 300g and refrigerate the remaining watermelon; if not, just use 300g of prepared or freshly cut chunks).

  • This recipe makes two 200ml glasses, which is also enough to fill a baby watermelon for an exotic sharing smoothie or simply a larger single serving.
