The days are getting warmer and warmer in Guatemala. Our Summer is almost here! Time for cold drinks, outdoor barbeques, ceviches and fun in the sun.
I’ve been into fruit smoothies lately. I’m trying to get my fruit quota of the day, and it seems a good way to get my daughter to
eat drink her fruit. I’ve never had a problem with her eating habits, thankfully she eats very well, but I do have trouble getting her to eat fruit sometimes…except bananas.
This Watermelon Smoothie is delicious and very refreshing. Regarding it’s nutritional value, I can tell you watermelon is a great source of antioxidants and vitamin C!
You might find it strange that there is pepper in this. Put it in there, trust me. It won’t make your smoothie taste like pepper, I promise! It just accentuates the watermelon flavor.
I’ve used pepper in melon for years. You should give it a try, just sprinkle cold melon pieces with a little black pepper.
A Foodies’ Kitchen Original Recipe
Serves 2-3, depending on the size of your glass
2 ½ cups chopped seedless watermelon
1 cup ice
½ cup orange juice
¼ teaspoon black pepper
- If your watermelon is not chopped, go ahead and cut it in smaller pieces and take out its seeds.
- Transfer the watermelon, orange juice, pepper and ice into the blender. Blend into a thick drink and enjoy!
- If you want a sweeter smoothie, you can add a little honey.
