Watermelon Smoothie (40)

Do you find yourself drudging through your work day? Maybe the 2pm energy crash is a bit too familiar?

AND I have just the refreshingly light drink recipe to kick start your 10-minute energy-boosting journey.

This drink SCREAMS summer, health and happiness, all rolled up into one pretty pink package.

(I have a thing for pretty pink foods if you haven’t noticed.)

Lately, my drink of choice for my energy-boosting sessions has been a bottle of RISE Kombucha (I’m on day 21 of 30 of the kombucha challenge that I mentioned over here).

BUT if I can squeeze in two slots into my day, I whip up a quick light smoothie for the sun action.

Using juice and smoothies is how I maintain healthy, balanced energy throughout the day – no more 2pm crashes, overeating, binging or guilt. Start your journey to a healthy, balanced you.

Now I want to hear from you (because I’m sure you have fabulous tricks up our sleeve that will benefit all of us) –

How do you combat the 2pm energy crash?

Do you find it harder to eat healthy, or make choices you feel proud of, when you’re tired, drained or maxed out?

  1. There is 27G of sugar in one serving of this drink. That is a lot! I love the idea of watermelon and strawberries as my family loves these fruits. I wonder is it the coconut water that adds to the extra sugar content. I will try to find something else to add or omit the water all together.

    • Great idea! Let us know how it goes if you try it with a modification!

    • Coconut water has very little sugar. All that sugar is mostly just coming from the fruit!

  2. I love this recipe! The only thing is I needed to add a few more strawberries to sweeten the smoothie up a bit :)

  3. I make this all the time it’s great. I started adding cucumber to it as well. Delicious!

    • I’m so glad you enjoy it! Great idea, adding the cucumber.

  4. I love using watermelon in fruit smoothies. It is so so filling. I tend to not add water though, cause watermelon is very watery anyway. I think watermelon and pineapple is absolutely awesome! I think I might try this one out sometime too. Thanks for posting.

  5. Last week I purchased a pint watermelon juice $1.99 from a fancy market. Hubby didn’t care for the flavor or the cost. Made HP Watermelon Cooler this morning…Happy Hubby!

  6. Just made the watermelon smoothie for my daughter and I needless to say it was GREAT

  7. This watermelon smoothie is so refreshing and delicious that I have shared the recipe with my family and friends.

  8. I been looking to find something to help me restore my health. I have severe food allergies to wheat, gluten and sugar. I also have insulin dependent diabetes, sleep apnea and high blood pressure. I’m an older woman and want to feel good again. Everyday I take two handfuls of pills and I’m hoping to improve my health. Now I need to get the book and I’ll take any advice that will help!

    • Hi Ginny – I am so happy you found us and you’re planning to get my book. Enjoy <3
