Recipe: Watermelon Berries Smoothie


Aside from the Mango Orange Smoothie that I’ve previously posted about, my other favourite is watermelon berries smoothie. Made from fresh watermelon and a mixture of berries, I love the refreshing aftertaste of the smoothie. Simply the best for breakfast!

Thanks to the sweetness of the watermelon, the smoothie is sweet with a hint of sourness from the strawberries. The berries are replaceable with other type of berries like raspberry and blackberry. However, both raspberry and blackberry have large amount of tiny seeds which is something I don’t quite fancy.

Here’s the recipe:

Watermelon Berries Smoothie (serves 1)

300 g     watermelon (flesh only)
5            strawberry
30 g       blueberry

1. Cut the strawberries into slices. Freeze the strawberries, blueberries and half of the watermelon. Chill the rest of the watermelon.

2. Blend the chilled watermelon and then add the frozen berries and watermelon and continue to blend until a smooth mixture is formed. Add 2-3 tablespoon of water if the smoothie is too thick.
TIP: Thaw the berries and the watermelon for about 15-30 minutes if there is difficulty blending frozen fruits.

3. Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately!
