This sweet and fruity Watermelon & Strawberry Smoothie tastes like a splurge, but with Vega One French Vanilla, a touch of maple syrup and fruit as its sweetener, your sugar radar can rest easy. Transition from daytime smoothie to boozy evening cocktail by adding a splash of coconut vodka to the ingredients below.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Freeze your fruit. Cut half a watermelon into chunks and freeze in a resealable bag. Make sure the pieces are separated so they don’t stick together. Freeze your strawberries too.

  2. Add all ingredients to your blender and process until smooth.
