This watermelon smoothie recipe has fresh mint and cucumber, making it ultra-refreshing and hydrating for hot summer days.

You guys know how I love smoothies. They manage to sneak in foods I don’t actually like to eat (i.e. kale, carrots, spinach) in a way that’s delicious (and nutritious!) And I know I’m committing a culinary sin by saying this but…I don’t actually like eating watermelon very much. I blame it on a childhood allergy to melons, though nowadays the allergy is gone. But I’ve found one way that I actually really do enjoy watermelon, and that’s in summer smoothie form! It pairs so nicely with other summery, refreshing ingredients, like mint and cucumbers. So today we’re doing just that!

I don’t like adding ice to my smoothies, partly because I don’t like the strain it puts on my blender and also because it just seems to water it down. I prefer to freeze my fruits and let those be the things that keep my smoothie cool and frothy. So in this watermelon smoothie, I like to cube and freeze the watermelon before hand! It doesn’t have to be frozen solid, just an hour or so, but it does wonders for the deliciousness of this smoothie.

Then we’ll just throw in our cucumber, some mint leaves, and honey (if you tend to like things sweet). Puree until smooth, pour into a travel cup, and go enjoy the summer with your refreshing watermelon smoothie!

    I’m procrastinating going to the supermarket (omg, can you image :’) ) and I noticed that during our next hot mess I should definitely try some other nail polishes. Literally EVERY hand picture of me I wear red nail polish hahaha. Remind me next time 😛
