Whatta Melon Smoothie

Whatta Melon Smoothie

Credit for this fun recipe goes to Family Fun magazine. I recommend purchasing a whole watermelon since you will need to cube and freeze 2 cups worth for the recipe – that way your child will have a visual of the green rind, black seeds, and pink flesh.

Ingredients:

  • 2 kiwi fruit, cubed and frozen
  • 1/2 banana, frozen
  • Handful of fresh spinach
  • 1 and 1/2 cups vanilla coconut milk, divided
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar, divided
  • 2 cups frozen cubed watermelon
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • Mini non-dairy chocolate chips (such as Enjoy Life)
  1. In a blender, combine the kiwi, banana, spinach, 1/2 cup milk, and 1 tablespoon agave; process until smooth and green – the more spinach you use, the greener it will be! Pour into the bottom of smoothie glasses.
  2. Rinse out the blender and add the watermelon, strawberries, remaining 1 and 1/2 cups milk, and remaining tablespoon agave. Process until smooth.
  3. Spoon the watermelon layer over the green layer – ideally the two won’t mix, but we still got a layered, slightly mixed-up effect.
  4. Top with chocolate chips for the seeds!
