A last taste of summer… watermelon smoothie

We’ve been back from the sunny paradise that is Mallorca for a week now after a wonderful stay at Hotel Zhero (not a sponsored post, I just love this place so much I’m happy to share the link)

It was a real shock to the system to go from 30 degree heat by the pool on Saturday to 8 degrees (that’s 86 fahrenheit to 46 fahrenheit for my lovely readers across the pond) and back to work on Monday: never has Nottingham felt more like the Arctic, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

In an effort to capture one last taste of summer before accepting that three blankets and a duvet are now essential attire, I made one of our favourite summer treats for breakfast yesterday:

Watermelon Smoothie

ahhh, sunshine in a glass

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1/4 watermelon
  • 600 millilitres almond milk

Method

  1. Ensure that both the watermelon and almond milk have been chilled to perfection in the fridge.
  2. Slice the watermelon and pop it in the blender, add the almond milk. Blitz for thirty seconds.
  3. Serve.Β It really is that easy!

For those of you in the UK shivering alongside me, this chilled summer classic may not appeal right now, but trust me it’s delicious and a perfect accompaniment to a hot sunny day.

For those of you in Hawaii, the Maldives or any other appropriately hot climate, where is my invite?

  1. I have heard that juiced watermelon is to die for. I have not had the opportunity to try it you. That looks so good. I think I would like it with the milk. Thanks for the tip. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Liz, it really is delicious and the almond milk just gives it a complementary depth of flavour. It tastes like a really decadent milkshake, yet there is nothing bad about it!
