The Ultimate Refreshing Watermelon Smoothie

Watermelon as a base makes for an ultra refreshing and nourishing smoothie. High on flavour and low in calories.

Watermelon has been hands down my favourite summer fruit this summer! You can enjoy it so many ways and it always hits the spot. This time I wanted to make a refreshing smoothie that was full of flavour but light and low on calories, so I could make a huge pitcher and enjoy throughout the day.

Containing only four ingredients this is so quick to whip up and enjoy. Tastes like summer in a cup!

More like a slushie in texture, I added strawberries and mint for more flavour.  The combination is perfectly sweet without the need for any added sugars. Plus between the mint and the watermelon, you can instantly feel the cooling effect it has on the body.
