The most refreshing smoothie made with just 3 simple ingredients: watermelon, strawberries and lime juice. It’s not meant to be a high-protein, filling breakfast smoothie. Instead, I love having this smoothie as a light hydrating snack during the summer.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • Watermelon: Make sure to use fresh in-season watermelon for the best results. If fresh watermelon is not in season or accessible to you, you can use frozen watermelon. I recommend thawing the watermelon in the fridge before using. You will need the watermelon to be fresh or thawed as it will create the “liquid” for this smoothie. Otherwise, you could try using fresh strawberries and frozen watermelon.
  • Strawberries: Use frozen strawberries to create a cold, refreshing smoothie. As mentioned above, if you want to use frozen watermelon, use fresh strawberries.
  • Lime Juice: This will add a bit of acidity and flavor to the smoothie. You can use more or less to taste. I recommend using freshly squeezed lime juice.
  • Sweetener: A sweetener is not necessary for this recipe as the fruit will already be sweet. However, if the fruits are not in-season or overly sweet, you can add some extra sweetness with a Medjool date.

Watermelon Strawberry Lime Smoothie FAQ:

Can I Replace the Strawberries With Other fruits?

Yes! Raspberries would be especially good in this recipe. Other fruits might work well, depending on your preferences. Just make sure that you use frozen fruits.

What Sweetener Can I Use?

I love adding a Medjool date for a little extra sweetness when the watermelon or strawberries aren’t as sweet. Maple or a vegan honey could be good to taste.

Can I Replace Lime Juice with Lemon Juice?

Yes, lemon juice could work. Start with a small amount and adjust to taste.

Notes

For easy blending, add the watermelon at the bottom of the blender. When blended, they’ll liquify and will help break down the frozen strawberries. Use a blender stick if needed.
As this is a simple recipe, the freshness of the ingredients will make a difference. In-season fruit will be sweeter and will result in a better, sweeter smoothie. If the fruit isn’t as sweet as you’d like, feel free to add a date or liquid sweetener to taste.
