Watermelons are very low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium with a good source of potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin C. They are mostly made of up water but pack a delicious flavor with very low calories. This makes it an excellent albeit unique choice for a smoothie.
All you need is 2 cups seedless watermelon and 1/3 cup yogurt. You can use any yogurt you prefer or in my case whatever you have in your refrigerator. I used ALDI Friendly Farms Vanilla Yogurt for our delicious treat. If you want to add a little minty kick, add a couple tablespoons of fresh mint.
- 2 cups seedless watermelon
- ⅓ cup yogurt (greek, vanilla, plain, whatever suits your fancy!)
- 1-2 tablespoons fresh mint
- Blend all ingredients in a blender or mixer. Serve fresh.
This is a unique smoothie that is a nice change of pace once in awhile but I don’t see it being a daily smoothie for me!
