Smoothie Sunday: Watermelon Kiwi Smoothie
As soon as I saw the watermelon in my kitchen I knew I wanted to try making a watermelon smoothie. I also knew I wanted to have some other fruit in it. After some research I decided to use kiwi. Also, I had an extra kiwi from the kiwi strawberry smoothie and wanted to use it before it went bad. The combination was really nice and refreshing.
In retrospect I realize this smoothie is better as a snack/refresher because it wasn’t as filling as most of the smoothies I’ve made so far. But it’s still really yummy and worth making.
Watermelon Kiwi Smoothie:
- 2 cups watermelon cubes (seeds removed, if any)
- 1 kiwi, skin removed
- 4 ice cubes
- ¼ cup milk
- Dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
Blend the first 3 ingredients until smooth. Add the milk and pinch of salt (and cayenne if adding). Blend until well mixed, tasting along the way. Once everything is well blended pour into a tall glass and enjoy!
I didn’t add sugar to this smoothie because the watermelon was plenty sweet enough. But you can certainly add sugar if you need too. Also, the cayenne adds a nice little kick to counter all the sweetness.
Just a warning, this smoothie is more watery than most because well, watermelon is just very watery. It has water in its name. I found that I needed to drink it fairly quickly, or else it started to separate, with the water/juice part sinking to the bottom and the more icy part floating on top.
