You don't often see a watermelon smoothie. This delicious fruit, in my opinion, isn't used nearly often enough in fruit smoothie recipes. I think this is because people are unsure which flavors work well with watermelon.
I've done a lot of experimenting and have come up with a really simple and incredibly tasty recipe for a Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie:
This watermelon smoothie recipe is SO tasty it even gets a shout-out from the fabulous ladies over at Lunch Pails & Lipstick. They recommend it to their readers - check it out here!
My specialty is creating healthy smoothie recipes which use only fresh, ripe fruit. No other ingredients necessary!

What's the best time for watermelon smoothies?
My watermelon smoothie recipe is a PERFECT thirst quencher on a hot summer day.
I also highly recommend it if you're looking for something healthy to eat that will curb those afternoon junk food cravings! It's a great recipe to make in the morning, put in a thermos and take it to work with you.
4 cups of watermelon (with peel removed)
9-10 frozen strawberries*
Two simple steps:
1) Cut watermelon into bite size cubes, then place in a high speed blender:
Blend until smooth.
2) Next, add frozen strawberries* to the blended watermelon and blend until very smooth. Ready to drink!
*I like to freeze my own fruit instead of using the prepackaged kind. Simply remove the green stems from the strawberries, wash, and place in a bowl in your freezer at night. In the morning, your strawberries will be ready for you.
If you do use frozen strawberries from a bag, make sure the only ingredient is strawberries! Avoid added sugars or "fruit juice"!
I cannot more highly recommend the Vita-mix blender. It's an investment of money, but I can honestly say it's worth every penny. Finally giving up those cheap blenders and getting a Vita-mix professional blender was, for me, like getting out of a twenty year old pickup truck and sliding behind the wheel of a BMW! One of the best decisions I've ever made.
