This Mixed Berry Watermelon Smoothie is so simple and easy to make but so refreshing and delicious. Made in under 3 minutes with just 4 ingredients- the ultimate quench thirsting drink! (Vegan + GF)
Yes, I know it’s almost the end of summer but this smoothie that I made with random left overs on this super humid and hot day is just so incredibly delicious I HAD to share it. It would have been selfish of me not to.
My boyfriend (Eric) requested a smoothie after our super intense leg workout and all I had left in the fridge was some watermelon. Mind you, it was the part of the watermelon that isn’t super sweet, you know near the rind. I also dug up a bag of berries I’ve been freezing all summer long which included some blueberries, black berries and raspberries. Threw that into the blender with a pinch of salt and it was good, but it was missing creaminess. I threw in a frozen banana and half a block of left over soft tofu and blended it up again. HOLY MOLY. Adding tofu to smoothies NEVER fails to impress me. Not only does it make smoothies super duper creamy, but it also gives it an extra protein boost (WIN!).
I drove to Costco just to pickup a couple more watermelons. And it would be a lie if I said I didn’t have this smoothie every. single. day- and I’m not even that much of a smoothie person. It’s THAT good. The watermelon makes is uber refreshing, the berries give it a bit of tartness and the banana adds a subtle sweetness. The tofu is the dude that ties it all together with it’s ability to make it super creamy.
And… it didn’t stop there. I went back AGAIN just to grab a few more watermelons. But this time, I froze half. Freezing the watermelon beforehand turns this smoothie into a creamy slushy- it’s incredible. Plus, it’s just another way for me to hoard watermelon so I can still have this smoothie even when watermelons are out of season (win #2).
TIP: you can also just slice off the parts closer to the rind that no one really enjoys eating anyways and freeze them in chunks. A really smart way of freezing watermelon (and any fruit for the matter), is to freeze them on a baking tray or in serving portions so that you don’t have to try and break apart huge pieces of fruit.
