The temperatures jumped up quickly here in Richmond, so I’ve been reaching for smoothies on the regular. While I usually go for a banana and peanut butter combination, the warmer temperatures had me craving something lighter and hydrating.

The frozen watermelon chunks are a perfect base for this smoothie. The frozen strawberries add sweetness and the coconut water has electrolytes to keep you hydrated on hot days. The lime adds a bit of tang and the mint takes the cooling sensation to the next level.

Watermelon is also full of lycopene and vitamin C which are anti-inflammatory antioxidants. Thanks to its high water content, it’s actually pretty low in calories. That means it’s nutrient dense and it tastes amazing, so let’s get to the recipe!

This smoothie was so refreshing on a hot afternoon. It’s also perfect for after a workout when you’re ready to cool down. I also think this would make a great cocktail base… rum anyone?

Tips for freezing watermelon

  • Cut watermelon into 1″ chunks and remove seeds, if needed.
  • Store it in an airtight container or freezer bag.
  • For even faster smoothies, store in individual size freezer bags so you can make an individual serving without having to thaw the whole container.

When picking out frozen strawberries, be sure to check the ingredients list. Some frozen brands add sugar, but strawberries are plenty sweet on their own! Make sure you grab a bag with no added sweetener.
