Watermelon Smoothie Ingredients

  • Watermelon Cubes – Fresh or frozen. If you want a thick smoothie, freeze your watermelon in advance. If you choose fresh watermelon, you will have more of a juice consistency.
  • Frozen Strawberries – Strawberries pair so well with watermelon and add a tart, delicious flavor to this smoothie.
  • Vanilla Yogurt – Use vanilla yogurt or green yogurt. Yogurt adds a creamy texture to this recipe.
  • Honey – Honey adds sweetness and flavor to this recipe.
  • Milk – Use your choice of plant-based or dairy milk. I used almond milk.
  • Mint Leaves – Use a few mint leaves as a fresh garnish for your watermelon smoothie.
