Healthy Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie

Cold and refreshing, sweet and tart, with a twist of lime for freshness – this vegan, gluten-free smoothie is a perfect (and healthy!) summer treat, complete with chia seeds, which I probably don't need to tell you are a nutritional GOLD MINE.

Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie

Minimalist Baker

Serves 2


1 1/2 cups (240 g) fresh watermelon, cubed (black seeds removed)

1 cup (120 g) frozen strawberries

1/2 ripe banana (50 g), previously peeled, chopped and frozen

1/2 - 3/4 cup (120-180 ml) unsweetened plain almond milk

1 lime, juiced (~30 ml)

1 Tbsp chia or hemp seeds (optional)

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth, adding more almond milk to thin, or more frozen strawberries or ice to thicken. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more lime for acidity, banana for sweetness, or watermelon for a more intense watermelon flavor. Top with additional chia seeds to mock watermelon seeds! Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.

I can't wait to give this a try – let me know how yours come out! :)

Think positive, love food, be happy :)
