Watermelon Smoothie



Yep, another smoothie to cool down from the summer heat. This one is really refreshing. Fresh watermelon with a couple splashes of apple juice and a ton of ice blended together. You can use real apples too. I'd suggest the green variety would be best. It just so happened that I had the juice on hand, so I felt it perfect to go well with the watermelon.

Subtle fruit flavor that makes you want lounge in a chair all day and simply relax. I'll let the smoothie speak for itself. Doesn't it look inviting? Come lounge with me on this fine summer day.





Watermelon Smoothie

2 c watermelon (deseeded)
1/4 c apple juice
3-4 c Ice

Blend all three ingredients together.
