Watermelon Blueberry Smoothie

July 30, 2012 by Jenny Melrose
The summer is usually warm, but so far this summer has been the hottest I can remember here in NY.  So we’ve tried to find ways to stay cool.  I recently made a Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie that was great, but I wanted a little bit something different this time around.  I used what I had on hand and a watermelon blueberry smoothie was born.

I recently took an interest in using watermelon to create Fruit Sparklers after I had such a success creating my Baseball Mitt Fruit Salad Bowl.  The blueberries were left over from our Blueberry Lemonade Cupcakes.  One of my favorite things about smoothies is how easy they are to make.  You simply throw all the ingredients into the blender and you’re done!
Ingredients
1/4 of a seedless watermelon, chopped into chunks
1 cup of blueberries
1 tablespoon french vanilla yogurt
2 cups of ice
2 oz. frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed

The recipe makes three large servings or six child size servings that are perfect after a run through the sprinkler.

The smoothie is also a great drink to bring to the park because as the ice melts you end up with more than you started out with.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I’m pretty sure if you’d like to stop over for a visit, my bossy pants of a daughter will show you the way.

You can also find me on: FacebookTwitterGoogle+ and Pinterest.  We’d love to have you for our weekly link party, Whimsy Wednesdays or our monthly Bloglovin Blog Hop.
