Pretty in pink – that’s one way to describe this refreshing summer smoothie. If you have watermelon leftover from your last backyard barbecue and plenty of ripe berries, you can put this smoothie together in no time.
Add vanilla greek yogurt, watermelon, raspberries, mint leaves, and ice to your blender jar. Cover, PULSE a few times, then blend on high for 30 to 45 seconds until the ingredients are completely blended.
We topped our smoothie with a sprinkle of chia seeds (they almost look like watermelon seeds on top of the pink smoothie), but you could add a few more fresh berries or a sprig of mint for a pop of green (again keeping with the watermelon theme).
Blend one up for a quick breakfast, post-workout treat, or to cool off after a day in the sun. It’s a great way to make room in your refrigerator’s overflowing fruit drawer this summer.
