Simple Watermelon Smoothie
Ingredients 1 1/2 cups fresh watermelon (cubed // black seeds removed) 1 cup frozen strawberries 1/2 medium ripe banana (previously peeled // chopped and frozen) 1/2 – 3/4 cup unsweetened plain almond milk 1 medium lime (juiced // 1 lemon yields ~30 ml) 1 Tbsp chia or hemp seeds (optional) Directions Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth, adding more almond milk to thin, or more frozen strawberries or ice to thicken. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more lime for acidity, banana for sweetness, or watermelon for a more intense watermelon flavor. Serves 2 (as original recipe is written) – top with additional chia seeds to mock watermelon seeds! Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.
