Family friendly recipe
Watermelon – I used fresh and seedless watermelon chunks for this recipe.
Dairy free milk – I used almond milk here but you may use any dairy free milk as per your taste.
Mint – fresh mint leaves definitely adds some nutrition and a fantastic aroma to it.
Ginger – its good for digestion and moreover it adds a lot of flavor to it.
Dates – I like to use dates because of its health benefits. Dates are high in fiber and is a whole food too. They sweeten this recipe perfectly keeping this recipe healthy and nutritious. You may use banana instead if desired. Maple syrup would make it thinner in consistency so I do not recommend it in this smoothie.

How to make
Firstly, in a blender, I combined watermelon chunks, dates, mint leaves, root ginger and almond milk.
Secondly, I blended it until smooth and creamy.
Lastly, I poured it in the serving glasses and garnished it with few more fresh mint leaves.
It was refreshing and hydrating and so delicious.
This is a perfect thirst quenching drink which all age group can enjoy. Its kid friendly and can be made nut-free too.
- You may add 1/2 cup of sliced fresh or frozen strawberries also along with other ingredients for a more vibrant taste and color.
- Frozen banana will make it creamier and more like a milkshake.
- You may add 1 tbsp of hempseeds to add protein in it.
It is important to blend this smoothie in high speed blender until its creamy. Even though the ingredients are easy to blend but it starts to become creamy after blending for few seconds to a minute.
This watermelon smoothie tastes best when served immediately. However, you may keep it in a glass jar with a lid for few hours in the refrigerator. Stir and enjoy.
Yes! Frozen watermelon chunks will make this smoothie thicker. However, for a quick and convenient recipe I personally prefer making it with fresh watermelon.
I have used dairy free milk in this recipe to give it a smoothie texture. This makes it taste different than a juice.
