Simply modify the basic recipe
The basic recipe for our watermelon smoothie can be modified according to personal taste. Let’s start with the lemon. You can, for example, replace them with other citrus fruits such as orange and lime and sometimes squeeze out more, sometimes less juice.
You can also add more fruit to the blender. Summer fruits like strawberries, raspberries, and the like go well with the watermelon smoothie – and not just because of their color. They provide even more natural sweetness and smoothness.
Isn’t that drink sweet enough for you? Help yourself with healthy sugar alternatives! Liquid sweeteners such as agave syrup and coconut blossom syrup are particularly suitable. They are evenly distributed during mixing.
