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!

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

  1. Hi, how many calories in this smoothie???

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

    1. 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! 🙂

  2. Yummy! This strawberry watermelon smoothie looks is really awesome! I think it is very effective for Weight Loss Challenge! thanks for share…

  3. Love this. I found that freezing the watermelon as well as the strawberries makes a nice almost slushy drink that needs no ice to water it down. It’s definitely a summer favorite around my house. Thanks for the idea and the recipe!

    1. I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed it! I like to freeze the watermelon too sometimes whenever I plan ahead because it’s so refreshing on a hot day.

  4. This was delicious, thanks so much! I added a half of a frozen banana and a packet of Truvia. I made 1 serving so I started with 1 cup of watermelon.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for writing with your proportions for smaller servings, I know lots of people will benefit from that!

    1. I think you’ll love the next watermelon recipe then, it’s another drink and we take it everywhere with us in the summertime!

  5. Hi,did I miss the calorie count or do you do that? I know this will be good and I thank you!

  6. I cut the recipe down to just 1/6 of the original numbers for myself. It was AMAZING. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks so much Ethan, I originally made this recipe on a whim on a hot summer’s day with what I had available, and it’s become one of my all time favorites!

  7. Wow! This is so good and refreshing . I made this for my daughter who just had braces put on. Her teeth are so sore and she only wants smoothies. She was very pleased when I gave this to her tonight! Thanks for the great recipe.

    1. This smoothie really hits the spot every time the temperature soars! I’m so glad you and your family are enjoying it! 🙂

    1. I use 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice. I use a gadget called a reamer to juice my lemons but you can simply squeeze them by hand as well. Start by rolling the lemon under the palm of your hand, applying pressure to slightly soften the lemon. Next cut it in half and squeeze out the lemon juice, you can use a fork or the reamer I mentioned to make juicing the lemon easier. Hope this helps, and let me know if you have anymore questions!

    1. The strawberries don’t have to be frozen for this smoothie, but it’s best if they’re cold so that your smoothie won’t be warm. When they’re frozen they make kind of a slushy texture which is nice when the weather is hot.
