Another tip, not really a smoothie but… If you ever have too much watermelon (Seedless. Or any other melon, without the seeds.) and are afraid you won’t use it all in time take a bunch and blend it! It makes a refreshing drink and somehow is easy to eat lots of it this way.

This is such a sugar pink colour, it glows! But don’t mess with the sweet sugary vixen lurking at the bottom of this drink — she might just turn around and bite you!
We make watermelon “slurpees” all summer long. Ice + watermelon (plus a couple of spoonfuls of water to get it going )in the blender makes a yummy treat. You don’t even have to remove the seeds; they sink to the bottom of your cup. (And if you do drink a few little bits, whats a little extra fiber anyway…?) Oranges and other juicy citrus are nice, too. I also like apples + berries.
2 cups coarsely chopped cantaloupe
2 cups sliced ripe banana (about 2 medium) …
2 large juicy oranges, peeled and seeded ( use the white part surrounding the orange — it’s good! Adds creaminess)…
1 ripe mango, cubed
2 cups cubed seedless watermelon
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen bananas …
1 ripe banana
1 cup vanilla soy milk …
I started off just adding spinach to the carrot citris cocktail we all love, but gradually started adding more fruits. The secret is to have lots of sweet and fluidy fruits to overwhelm the subtle flavor of spinach. You CANNOT taste the spinach – I guarantee it!
I have some red and green mugs that are nice for serving this hot, fruity tea. Garnish with cinnamon sticks.

We settled on a one bedroom apartment with the address […]
