Watermelon Mojito Smoothie

standard September 9, 2014 1 response

This week’s recipes were a bit tricky to put together. The number of items that you can blend up in a smoothie get a little interesting, especially when my goal is to get at least two into each recipe. For today’s smoothie, I decided to start a little bold and mix bright, juicy watermelon with bold, intense arugula. Don’t let the green scare you! This is a frosty cool drink on a hot day or after a sweaty workout. The lime and mint balance out the peppery arugula, and the fruit gives it sweetness. A perfect treat for an afternoon pick me up.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c arugula
  • 2 T mint leaves
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 T chia seeds
  • 1 T agave nectar
  • 1 c chopped watermelon, frozen

  • 1 1/2 c water

Steps:

  1. Add all ingredients in order to a high-speed blender. Blend on high until smooth and frosty.

Coconut water would also work well here for a little extra hydration. Be generous with the mint and lime if you’re scared of the arugula.
