Pink Watermelon Smoothie Bowl

| 1 June 2015

We love watermelon. In fact, from May onwards, we get big juicy melons every week, keep them in the fridge and use them as a super hydrating, refreshing base for all our smoothies. It is easy to transform watermelon from refreshing watery snack to a substantial and nourishing yet still hydrating meal. Our top tip is to blend the watermelon with a seed and dried berry of your choice. The watermelon flavour is absolutely lovely in a creamy smoothie, like the one below. (And the gorgeous pink colour is a bonus!)

Ingredients

1 organic watermelon (approx. 4 cups of cubes)

4 TBLS hulled hemp seeds

2 TBLS of goji berries

2 TBLS of mulberries

1/2 tsp Camu Camu or acerola cherry (alternatively use the juice of 1/4 of lemon or lime)

1 cup of ice

1 TBLS of cold press oil of your choice

Method:

Blend watermelon (seeds and rind is ok to blend as long as you have organic watermelon AND a high-speed blender) with the hemp seeds, dried berries, and superfood powder or citrus juice, add extra ice if necessary to maintain a cool temperature. When blending with watermelon seeds and rind make sure that you blend long enough to reach a smooth consistency. Add the oil last. Serve immediately with your choice of fruity or berry toppings.
