This watermelon fruit smoothie is made from a fruit favorite of young and old alike-watermelon—and, you won’t believe how refreshing a watermelon smoothie tastes!
Its also easy to turn this watermelon fruit smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse simply by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
- 4 cups seeded watermelon chunks
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 2 cup cracked ice
- 1 cup plain yogurt

- 1/4 tsp almond extract
- Optional: 1 Tbsp. Chia Seed
Place all the ingredients in your blender, with one cup of cracked ice and mix. Continue adding more of the ice until the smoothie is mixed to our favorite consistency. You will love the flavor the almond extract adds. Pour and serve! Wow — what a cool down!
