7 Days of Smoothies: Day 3 Watermelon Crush

Watermelon Cucumber Blueberry Coconut Water Crush Smoothie

The winter weather is forcefully making its entrance into the Auckland atmosphere at present, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the last remains of delicious summer fruits left on store shelves! This smoothie is a bit more like a slushy, and is super refreshing for those hot mornings when the sun gets a look in, before the clouds converge! For those of you not privy to Auckland’s weather ways, “Four Seasons in a Day” explains it all.

I think this will also be my new go-to smoothie before Hot Yoga or any intense cardio class as it is refreshing as well as super hydrating, and it takes all of two minutes to make!

MAKES: 2 Standard Glasses

INGREDIENTS:

1/8 large water melon

1/2 telegraph cucumber

Blueberries (a medium sized handful/ half a punnet)

Coconut Water

METHOD:

The only prep work is scooping the delicious pink watermelon flesh from the skin, and peeling the cucumber. Throw everything in the blender and add coconut water to top it up until you get a consistency you like. Garnish with mint.

To Hydration!
