Anti-Inflammatory Watermelon Smoothie
Prep Time: 10 minutes | Yields: 2-3 cups
All the ingredients in this smoothie are anti-inflammatory and loaded with nutrients so cool down with something healthy! This link shows you how to pick a good watermelon every time.
I used my Vitamix blender to make this, but watermelon blends easily so any blender should work. If you decide you want smoothies to be a part of your daily diet, I would highly recommend investing in a Vitamix or a more powerful blender. Less expensive blender options to consider are a Bullet or Ninja.
- 3 cups seedless cubed watermelon (I used organic)
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 2 tsp. chopped fresh basil
- Put cubed watermelon in blender and blend well
- Add frozen pineapple, raspberries, and basil and blend until smooth
- Pour into glasses and enjoy!
