Berry Watermelon Green Smoothie

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been eating a lot of watermelon. Is it not the most perfect summer fruit?! So sweet, so refreshing, so hydrating!

Smoothie-lover that I am, I decided to try adding some of this juicy fruit into my blender. The results were wonderful. The melon provided an almost creamy quality to the smoothie, and of course, added a delightful flavor. I highly recommend giving this a try!

1 c baby spinach

1/2-1 c water or coconut water (depends on how juicy your watermelon is, and how liquidy you like your smoothies)

1 scoop protein powder (optional)

Blend all the ingredients together in a high-speed blender. Pour and enjoy!

    This smoothie looks great! I don’t believe I’ve ever added it to my smoothies before, only juices. I’m not sure if you know this, but you aren’t suppose to mix watermelon with other fruits as it’s poor food combining. :) Overall, this smoothie looks great! =)

    Have a great day!
