A two-ingredient smoothie? Groundbreaking.
Yes, a two-ingredient smoothie. This is inspired by an old Kimberly Snyder recipe (so old that I can’t actually find the original to link here), and I’ll be honest— I tried my best to chef it up. I made three other versions, one each with lemon, mint and cinnamon. They were all good, but the original duo is the winner. Watermelon is incredibly hydrating and the almond milk adds protein and richness. The resulting blend tastes like watermelon ice cream. Groundbreaking indeed.
- 1½ scant cups chopped watermelon, frozen overnight
- 1½ cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Combine both ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth. Pour into a glass and serve.
Note: I often add protein to this, but suggest using a tasteless one, as this recipe doesn’t need any extra sweetness.
