Fruity Watermleon Smoothie

Fruity Watermelon Smoothie

Most mornings I eat some sort of fruit and occasionally I like to make a smoothie. Smoothies are great because it's an easy way to get in several servings of fruits and/or vegetables in one sitting, all while having a delicious breakfast or snack! Pick the fruits and/or veggies you like (you can even throw in nuts and/or seeds if you like!) and take it for a spin the blender and you've got an instant, healthy breakfast or snack that will really hit the spot.

What You'll Need:
1 cup of watermelon
1/2 cup of blueberries
3-4 strawberries
1 banana, sliced (Note: I usually use a frozen banana, but I didn't have any frozen bananas today so I used ice instead. If you use frozen fruit you can leave out the ice.)
1/2 cup of orange juice
5-6 ice cubes (Optional)

Fruity Watermelon Smoothie: Ready to Blend

Dump ingredients in the jar of your blender and blend until smooth. (Did I mention how easy this was?)

Makes one large smoothie or two small smoothies.

Notes: There is no need to use any sweetener in a smoothie as the fruit/juice is sweet enough in and of itself. You also don't have to use ice or frozen fruit, but I like the way it makes the consistency of the smoothie.

I really enjoyed it this morning. It was making me think it was spring even though it's still cold outside. :o)

Hi there! This smoothie looks awesome! I have a favor to ask...I have loaned out my Dorie book and can't seem to reach the friend I loaned it to! I SO want to make your choice, the Florida Pie, but I desperately need the recipe. Any chance you already have it typed and willing to email it to me? Otherwise, I will have to skip this week and its my first challenge! Aggh!
(love your photos, too, btw - very nice!)

Just emailed the recipe to you. Hope it goes through ok. I typed up the recipe and e-mailed it, but I think the girls are busy. Hope you get to make your first recipe! :o)
