Healthy Smoothie - Watermelon and Strawberry

recipes for healthy smoothies
As you may know I have started a little series on some healthy smoothie recipes. Last week I shared my recipe for a watercress, blueberry and pineapple. Today's smoothie is watermelon and strawberry. Here are some of the benefits of these ingredients---

Watermelon is great for your heart, its a great source of potassium and helps muscle and nerve function and it can ease inflammation among other things!

Strawberries can help lower blood pressure, they are great for your bones and eyes, and generally contribute to a healthy immune system.
strawberry smoothie
  • 3 cups chopped watermelon
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Agave Syrup or honey to taste
This recipe makes just enough for 3 large glasses. Chop it all up, throw it in the blender and serve chilled. This would have been a really easy one to make had it not been for all those pesky seeds in the watermelon. It did take a little while to get them all out, but once they were it was quick as a flash. I actually used frozen strawberries for this one, which made it even quicker!  I imagine this one would be great for after a workout, especially in the summer as it was really refreshing!

  1. Ooh scrummy. I guess you could leave the seeds in the watermelon when you blended it, and then pour it through a strainer into the glass to save time? xxx

    1. What a good idea! I'll have to try that next time!
