Earlier this summer, when I was giving a little smoothie presentation with my friend Kathy at The Seed, she mentioned that watermelon cubes make a terrific alternative to ice cubes in smoothies: similar texture, but a little creamier and more flavorful. Watermelon is not historically one of my favorite fruits, but it’s growing on me, and that’s in part thanks to Kathy’s influence! (By the way, if you’re looking to put new life in your smoothie routine, Kathy’s book, 365 Vegan Smoothies , is full of wonderful ideas). So, if making a whole beverage with watermelon doesn’t appeal, know that frozen watermelon is still a good trick to have up your smoothie sleeve!
I love the texture of this drink. As you sip, you’ll get icy pockets and pockets of sweet, pure watermelon and lime juice. Yum!
