Breakfast Basics: Watermelon-Raspberry Smoothie—So Summery!

/ Wednesday, June 12, 2013

We spent the weekend at our friends' house a few weeks back and they made the most scrumptious all-fruit smoothie for breakfast—lots of frozen watermelon, homemade fruit punch and a few other magical ingredients I can't remember. They inspired me! You see, despite my best efforts, I rarely eat breakfast at home (mostly because we start cooking and eating right away in the test kitchen). But I'd love to get in a big helping of fruit—and maybe eventually vegetables—first thing in the morning, how about you? It seems like such a responsible way to start the day! To ease myself into it, I whizzed up this Watermelon-Raspberry Smoothie for breakfast this morning. Super tasty! Even boyfriend had some. Here's how you make it...

SERVES: 2 to 4

3 cups watermelon chunks 
2 cups frozen raspberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup cranberry juice

Put the watermelon, raspberries, orange juice and cranberry juice in a blender with 1 cup ice. Blend until thick and smooth. Divide among glasses.

I’m curious, are you a smoothie person? If so, what’s in your morning mix? I’d love to know! xo Erin


  1. Great stuff, never tried watermelon in a smoothie

    1. Thanks so much, Matgalen! I hadn't watermelon in a smoothie, either—turns out it's super tasty :)
