Rosemary Watermelon Smoothie

This rosemary watermelon smoothie with lemon and pineapple and strawberries is one of my favorite smoothie recipes from The Blender Girl Smoothies book.

I called this the Rosemary Melonade smoothie because this recipe is an exotic blend that sips like a fancy cocktail, but skips the hefty bar tab.

Watermelon is super hydrating, and rich in vitamin C and anti-inflammatory lycopenes, while rosemary contributes awesome flavor and antibacterial backup. The combination makes this your secret immunity agent! Throw in the jalapeño booster for an added cleanse and kick.

The Blender Girl Smoothies Book:

There are 100 smoothie recipes in The Blender Girl Smoothies book. Each recipe contains three optional boosters that ramp up nutrition and/or flavor. You can choose one, two, or all three to suit your needs. And then, of course, tweak your blend to taste.

There are icons that quickly call out the major health benefits of the smoothie, as well as a full nutritional breakdown of ingredients (before boosters are added), a headnote outlining the major benefits, and a full color photo with every recipe.

In addition to the recipes, there is an ingredient glossary of smoothie ingredients such as leafy greens, fresh herbs, spices, coconut, superfoods, salt etc with my tips for pairing flavors with delicious success.

I will post some recipes from the book over the next month.

  1. Seriously one of my favorites – has a lemonade vibe. I even added about 1 cup of cauliflower and it was still really drinkable. My teenage girls aren’t awake enough for breakfast before school most days but the sweet-tart nature of this one really perks them up.
