This Strawberry Watermelon Smoothie is my favorite summertime refresher!

This smoothie is summer in a glass! It’s so refreshing during whenever temperatures soar, and it’s perfect for summertime activities. I first started making this the day after we hiked Turtle Mountain in Crowsnest Pass, Canada, and I downed a 32 ounce jar in record time.  

We had just spent the last week making all sorts of smoothies with my 3 year old nephew, who absolutely loves them, and knows no end of enthusiasm for all things blended!

Smoothie has now been pronounced “Smoodieee!” (the way he said it) in our house ever since. We came up with a few really good combinations, but this one was by far my favorite because it’s the perfect thirst quencher.

It’s been a couple years now since we first made this smoothie, and it’s still our summertime favorite! I get the craziest looks, (and comments) when people see me pushing my cart through Costco with 3 gigantic watermelons in it.

They always think I must be throwing the biggest BBQ party ever, and they’re always stunned to learn than in fact I’m just buying that much watermelon for me and my husband. Since we’re both crazy about watermelon, and it’s only really good in the summer, we tend to go through a lot!

We’ve actually developed a couple of watermelon drinks and smoothies over time, and you’ll be seeing our favorite drink to take hiking soon – the Watermelon Thirst Quencher. I never quite got around to getting the measurements down last year, but this year’s a different story, and I’ve got you covered in the watermelon department this summer season!

Tips for how to make this Strawberry Watermelon Smoothie:

You can make as much smoothie as your blender can hold, or you can par back a little for a single serving. First, split your watermelon open, and scoop out enough to fill a Vita-Mix blender, or other high speed blender. 

After blending the watermelon, add the lemon juice and frozen strawberries to the blender. Blend until smooth, and drink with great enthusiasm right away!

You will have about 9 cups of watermelon pieces, and 6 cups of watermelon purée after blending. Nine cups of watermelon is about 3 pounds. The watermelon that I bought weighed 18 pounds, so I’ll be making this everyday this week!

    Another great watermelon recipe is making a pico de gallo salsa but instead of tomatoes substitute for watermelon. It is so delicious.

    This is just what I was looking for. I’m in VA. And have been up since 3:30 thinking what to use with this watermelon. I’m headed to nearest store open for lemons. Want to make this now and share with my neighbor before she goes to work. Thanks Wanita

    Was a bit hesitant at first. However, this was a refreshing smoothie indeed! Thanks for sharing.

    It’s funny reading about your strawberry watermelon smoothie. I just bought a quart of fresh strawberries and I blended what was left after everyone ate some with my watermelon. I added a little bit of milk to help the blender. It was delicious. I usually blend my watermelon by itself and drink it. I will try a banana to the strawberry and watermelon. It might be a little thicker because of the banana.

    Hi, how many calories in this smoothie???

    I was also thinking of adding spinach & protein. Id like it to be my breakfast smoothie..

      I don’t know the calorie count for this recipe, but you can look it up online and I’ll leave a link to a popular calorie calculator below. I’m not sure about making this into a breakfast smoothie as the beauty of this one is in the simplicity, so I can’t say how that might work out. But I do know that both watermelon and strawberries are lighter flavors and might be overwhelmed by the spinach and protein. I do have lots of green smoothies on the blog that might work better for that purpose, I’ll leave you a couple links below and there’s even more on the blog. The Berry Green Smoothie in particular would be a good choice for the protein breakfast smoothie. I hope this helps, and be sure to let me know if you have anymore questions! 🙂
