A watermelon smoothie, just in time for July 4th weekend

Our favorite smoothie mixologist Jeanette Bronee (who’s a nutritionist, not a bartender by the way) just concocted this deliciously simple watermelon smoothie, or liquid sorbet as she calls it.

Here’s how to make it:

Put cubed watermelon in a blender. Press the button. Garnish or blend with peppermint leaves if you have them.

If only all recipes were this easy! For one large glass you’ll need about 3 cups of cubed watermelon, suggests Bronee, depending on how much ice you add. It’s more refreshing than sorbet (no added sugar) and has only 45 kcal per cup.
