Leftover Fruit Smoothie

In Cooking, Uncategorized on May 11, 2011 at 9:02 pm

I know. I know. That doesn’t sound appetizing, but I am working with the abundance of leftover fruit from my company this weekend.  It includes: watermelon, blueberries and bananas.  If you can think of a clever smoothie name that describes these things then – touché! I can not. It’s a smoothie, there is leftover fruit. It’s purpley. Promise it’s tasty. The End.

Ingredients:

1/2 large banana, frozen
1/3 cup blueberries, frozen
1 cup watermelon, chopped
1/4 cup pineapple juice, chilled 
1/4 cup ice

Directions: Combine all the ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Pour in a glass. Ta Da beautiful, delicious and nutritious breakfast, or snack… or whatever.

I love that this is an all fruit smoothie (i.e. no dairy or added sugars). It tasted like something from Smoothie King (a smoothie company I adore.) It was a beautiful, naturally sweet and refreshing breakfast.  I have never made a smoothie with watermelon before, but to be honest that flavor did not stand out.  Tomorrow I may try something focusing more on that fruit alone… especially since I have A LOT of it. Watermelon and ginger, or green tea, or ??? should prove interesting.

P.S. I like drinking my breakfast. Is that weird?
