I love when the yum factor is high and the work factor is low. That’s one of the great things about summer fruits and vegetables. They are peaking and need no extras to taste amazing. Today’s recipe is the simplest juice/smoothie recipe I know. Watermelon, being mostly water, can be blended and will have the consistency of juice without the juicer.
2 cups sugar baby watermelon
1 -2 teaspoons lemon juice (optional)
Blend together until smooth. Drink as is or for an even more liquid consistency, strain through a small-holed colander.
Watermelon is hydrating, has fiber and (big surprise) protein! It’s a cooling juice, prefect for the summer and it reduces hot flashes
