This triple berry watermelon smoothie is one of the most refreshing smoothies you’ll try this week!
With fresh watermelon and frozen berries to thicken everything up, this is a smoothie you don’t want to miss.
Some smoothies I do specifically to get some good nutrition into my day. Others, I do just to enjoy something refreshing. This definitely falls into the later category except that it’s still packed with good nutrition!
I had some frozen Triple Berry Blend from Costco left over and a big ol’ watermelon that needed eating in the fridge. So I got creative. I have to say that for a recipe of leftovers, this was pretty darn good. Perfect for a hot summer day!
It was completely refreshing and I felt pretty good about sharing it with Mini Chef as well. I love it when kids love food and have absolutely no idea how good it is for them. You know it’s good when they take one sip and smile from ear to ear!
WHAT FRUITS GO WELL WITH WATERMELON?
While watermelon goes well with most fruits, some are better than others. Here are some suggestions in case you want to add more fruits to this smoothie.
- Berries (nearly any kind)
CAN WATERMELON BE FROZEN FOR SMOOTHIES?
Absolutely! The trick it to cut it into chunks first, freeze those chunks in individual layers on a tray, and freeze completely before combining them into a storage bag or container. Frozen watermelon is also great for flavoring water in summer. Yum! (Just don’t thaw the watermelon and expect it to still be good. It gets mushy when thawed.)
HOW LONG DOES WATERMELON LAST AFTER CUTTING?
On average, about 3 to 5 days, providing you cover the cut side with plastic wrap and store the whole thing in the fridge. Always, always store cut watermelon in the fridge!
HOW LONG DOES A WATERMELON SMOOTHIE LAST IN THE FRIDGE?
As with most smoothies, they are best right after being made. But if you need to make some ahead of time, this particular smoothie is best within the first 12 hours, but can be enjoyed up to 24 hours. Beyond that, it’s not very enjoyable.
