Sipping a watermelon smoothie is one of my favorite ways to cool down on hot days. Watermelon is not only delicious and refreshing, but it’s low in calories and contains lots of vitamins, especially A and C.

Watermelon also contains a compound called lycopene which studies have shown to have an anti-cancer effect, especially in the digestive system (1,2).

Take advantage of watermelon season and try these 7 amazing watermelon smoothie recipes. You’ll be glad you did!

How to Make a Watermelon Smoothie

Watermelon smoothie recipes are pretty simple to make.


  • Step 1 – add all the ingredients into a blender
  • Step 2 – blend until smooth
  • Step 3 – pour into two medium size glasses
  • Step 4 – enjoy!

If you want to make the smoothie cold, you have two options:

  1. Freeze the fruit, or buy frozen fruit.
  2. Add 1/2 a cup of ice.

For these watermelon recipes, try cutting up a whole seedless watermelon into 1 inch cubes, then freeze into 2 cup servings. This way you’ll have the exact amount you need without chopping watermelon every time.

I recommend you use fresh ingredients, but you can also use frozen fruits if fresh isn’t available. Try to get organic both in frozen and fresh produce if possible.

I also recommend you serve these watermelon smoothies quickly since they generally taste best when cold.

Special Tip: If you’re serious about watermelon smoothies, I recommend you check out our list of best smoothie blenders. A good smoothie blender encourages you to drink more smoothies, and the health benefits are worth splurging for.

Watermelon Smoothie Recipes

A basic watermelon smoothie recipe generally contains watermelon, ice, and honey (optional) and tastes very similar to a slushy. It’s very delicious and healthy.

The 7 watermelon smoothie recipes I provide below have more ingredients to provide a unique and delicious smoothie experience, fruits like strawberries, bananas, pineapple are added to enhance the flavor and nutrition.

Each recipe makes two servings. Enjoy!

1. Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie

4. Watermelon Blueberry Smoothie

This is one of my favorite watermelon smoothie recipes, because I LOVE blueberries!

Blueberries are considered a “superfood”, thanks to their powerful nutritional benefits. They’re actually one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet, providing lots of Vitamins C, K, and manganese along with other beneficial plant compounds (9).

They are the “king” of antioxidant foods, having the highest antioxidant levels of all commonly consumed fruits and vegetables (10,11).

Watermelon Blueberry Smoothie Ingredients:

  • 2 cups watermelon pieces, seedless, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

5. Peach Watermelon Smoothie

This is another delicious summer smoothie using two fruits that are in typically in season during the summer months: peaches and watermelon. It tastes AMAZING!

Peaches contain a wealth of essential nutrients and antioxidants, and have been know to help fight cancer, obesity, cholesterol, and other diseases. They also help support eye health, better skin, healthier bones, and nervous system health (12,13,14).

  • 2 teaspoons honey (optional)

6. Watermelon and Orange Smoothie

This Watermelon and Orange Smoothie is one of my daughter’s favorite smoothie recipe.

The flavors of the orange, banana, and watermelon blend very nicely in this creamy and delicious smoothie.

Oranges are a great source of fiber, vitamin C, folate, thiamin, and antioxidants.They have numerous health benefits, including promoting heart health (15,16).

Watermelon and Orange Smoothie Ingredients:

  • 2 cups watermelon pieces, seedless, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 oranges (peeled and deseeded)
  • ½ a banana
  • 6-7 ice cubes
  • Sprig of mint (optional garnish)

7. Watermelon Lime Smoothie

The final smoothie is this Watermelon Lime Smoothie, and it tastes wonderful. The lime juice adds a nice burst of tanginess to this recipe, and balances nicely with the watermelon and strawberries.

Limes provide lots of antioxidants which helps boost your immunity, improve your skin, and other health benefits (17,18)

Watermelon Lime Smoothie Ingredients:

  • 2 cups watermelon pieces, seedless, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 6-7 ice cubes
  • 2 teaspoons honey (optional)


Every one of these watermelon smoothies tastes delicious, is relatively low in calories, and provides vitamins and minerals. If you’re eager to try a recipe with an “out of season” fruit, look in the freezer section for the fruits. I can find strawberries, blueberries, peaches and pineapple in my local store.

The best watermelon smoothie recipe is the one you want to make again and again. Feel free to try them all and even experiment with different fruits and ingredients.

The only thing better than a fresh watermelon on a hot summer day is a chilled watermelon green smoothie!

Watermelon blends well with bananas and other creamy-textured fruit, providing a delicious flavor accent in your summer smoothie recipes.

Because of the high water content of watermelons, you should use less water in your smoothie than you would with other recipes so that you get a thick, creamy texture.

Watermelon Nutrition and Health Benefits

While watermelons are low in most vitamins and minerals, they are a good source of vitamin C and beta-carotene (which your body synthesizes into vitamin A). Watermelons with red flesh have more lycopene than tomatoes, which is a nutrient believed to protect against prostate cancer.

Watermelons contain two interesting nutrients which are found especially abundantly in the edible rind, citrulline and arginine.

Citrulline has been shown to boost heart health, the immune system and help with weight loss and type 2 diabetes.

Arginine boosts nitric oxide in the body which helps relax blood vessels and can treat and prevent erectile dysfunction (more). Arginine also removes toxins from the body.

Top 3 Green Smoothie Recipes With Watermelon

This watermelon and mint smoothie is the best thing on a hot summer day! It’s also a delicious, refreshing drink to share with a friend while you soak up some sunshine in the backyard.

I didn’t add greens as I wanted a beautiful pink color for the photo, but feel free to add a handful or two of spinach. This will boost the mineral content, providing more calcium, iron, and magnesium.

How To Select Watermelons

Watermelons are a summertime staple. Select whole watermelons over halved or quartered ones since they loose nutrients once cut and stored.

Watermelons rank 26 out of 100 for pesticide residue according to research conducted by the Environmental Working Group. If you do not purchase organic watermelons, I recommend that you do not include the rind in your smoothies.

You might know (I’ve mentioned it before) that I spent a few years as a raw vegan – with a focus on fruit.

During those years one of my favorite breakfasts was a watermelon smoothie. In fact when I was working in a corporate office, I would usually have my breakfast at my desk when I arrived in the mornings and that breakfast was 99 times out of a 100, a super large watermelon smoothie.

It was a bit of a joke in the office – to the extent that when there was a secret santa one year, I was given a massive (and I mean MASSIVE) joke mug saying ‘LARGE’ over the front.

Yes, I went large on the smoothies. Very large!

Now while I am no longer raw vegan and don’t really recommend it either, the watermelon smoothie breakfasts were not a hardship!

In fact, watermelon is one of the most hydrating fruits and yes, my skin was pretty fabulous when I was drinking this every day!

This smoothie is just 2-ingredients, it really couldn’t be simpler, or easier to throw together.

And served super cold, it is one of the most refreshing things you could drink.

I deliberately kept this smoothie simple, the reason being that watermelon doesn’t mix well (digestively speaking) with too many other fruits, AND then there’s the fact that a watermelon smoothie tastes best when it’s more like an easily drinkable juice, rather than a super thick smoothie.

So that’s why I went with lime. Watermelon and lime flavors blend beautifully, with one flavor simply enhancing the other. There’s no clashes in flavor, or contrasts in texture and that’s just perfect for the purposes of this refreshingly delicious smoothie.

I didn’t use ice in this smoothie, rather my trick to serving up a deliciously cold watermelon smoothie is to keep the watermelon in the fridge.

I prefer this to using ice, because ice dilutes the flavor.

However, if you haven’t had time to chill your watermelon, then no worries, use some ice. The important thing is that this smoothie be served cold!

You will love this watermelon smoothie, it is:

  • Ice-Cold
  • Smooth
  • Drinkable
  • Quick and Easy
  • Only 2-Ingredients
  • Refreshing and Hydrating
  • Absolutely Delicious!

I think the best time to have this is at breakfast! But of course it works anytime of day. It’s just so fabulous for breakfast as it rehydrates you so perfectly and charges you up for the day ahead!

Deliciously refreshing 2-ingredient watermelon smoothie. Fabulous for breakfast or a post-workout snack. Hydrating and invigorating.


  • 6 and 1/2 cups (2.2lb/1kg) Watermelon (cubed)
  • 2 Limes (Juiced)


  1. Keep your watermelon chilled in the fridge and when you’re ready to make this smoothie, chop the watermelon into cubes and add to the blender jug.
  2. Squeeze the limes and add the juice to the blender jug.
  3. Blend well and then strain it through a kitchen sieve to remove the rough seeds so that you’re left with a very smooth drink. If you happen to use seedless watermelon you should still strain it so that your smoothie is perfectly smooth.
  4. Serve immediately.


*As long as your watermelon has been chilled in the fridge, there is no need to use ice. However, if you haven’t had time to chill your watermelon first, then add some ice, this drink needs to be served nice and cold.

Here’s a refreshing watermelon smoothie recipe with strawberry and lime that’s perfect for summertime. Just four simple ingredients to blend and sip to energize your day!

Are you looking for a refreshing summer beverage? Then I got what you need! I made a strawberry watermelon smoothie that will cool you down in an instant. Have you noticed strawberries in season at the market yet?

There is a fabulous local grocery store walking distance from our home, and they have dozens of flats just showcased out front. They were calling my name, plus the price was good. I also couldn’t resist grabbing a seedless watermelon to cut up and make the smoothie even more delicious.

Eating a juicy watermelon means it’s officially summertime, so let’s not wait a second longer. This mixture has just four ingredients to smoothie bliss, and it’s ready in under 5 minutes. Just grab a straw and sip away, sunshine and sea breezes here we come!

If you don’t have access to ripe berries right now, frozen strawberries will work. The fresh lime and mint opens up your senses and immediately invigorates you. I grabbed a seedless watermelon and chopped it into cubes, tossing any leftovers in the freezer for my next smoothie fix.

Since all of the berries and melons are at the beginning of their season and pretty ripe, it added just the right amount of sweetness to this cold drink. You can use a natural sweetener like agave nectar, honey or maple syrup if you want to please your sweet tooth and balance some of the tartness from the lime juice.

The moment I shared this recipe with my boys, it was hit! My son loves mommy’s smoothie, especially my strawberry banana flavor but I think this may be his new favorite. It has a slushy consistency, so it reminds him of a popsicle or sorbet, but much healthier.

My hubby Jason and I thought of another more fun idea for this smoothie. After that first batch, the next one we got a little more creative to make it adult friendly. I’m not going to lie; it makes an excellent margarita base. This strawberry watermelon smoothie is going to be your new summer breakfast and snack boost, or happy hour beverage.

What are tips for picking a ripe watermelon?

The first thing is to work your mighty biceps and lift up the watermelon. Regardless of the size, it should feel relatively heavy. Next step is to look for a creamy yellow splotch on the melon where it rested on the ground during harvest. The yellow color indicates ripeness. The last thing is to channel your inner musician and give the bottom of the melon a drum beat “tap.” Ripe watermelons will have a deep hollow sound. The melon may be over or under-ripe if it sounds dull. (Source: The Kitchn)

Quench Your Thirst with This 4-Ingredient Watermelon Smoothie

Photo: Nicole Crane

It’s no secret that watermelon is an all-time favorite summertime fruit. You probably look forward to your first bite of the juicy melon at the season’s first backyard party every year. Besides being delicious, thanks to its high volume of water, it’s both hydrating and low in calories. Watermelon is also packed with the antioxidant lycopene, which gives the fruit its red hue. In fact, it’s one of the highest sources of lycopene out there. (Did you know you can-and should-eat watermelon seeds? No, you won’t grow a watermelon in your belly. Check out all the fascinating health benefits of roasted watermelon seeds.)

While watermelon is a treat on its own, this delicious fruit also makes for an awesome star ingredient in smoothies. This smoothie recipe contains just four ingredients-watermelon, frozen mango, fresh lime, and agave nectar-making sure all the natural flavors shine through every sip. Plus, fewer ingredients means less time between blending and drinking. Besides being hydrating and healthy, this watermelon-lime smoothie offers up 20 percent of your daily vitamin A, 76 percent of your vitamin C, and 12 percent of your iron.

Now it officially feels like summer. The 4th of July has come and gone and the farmers markets are chock-full of delicious produce. It’s melon season, which means it’s high time for a watermelon smoothie!

Watermelon is full of lycopene. You’ve probably heard of lycopene before – it’s a carotenoid phytonutrient found in red fruits and veggies like tomatoes and watermelon – and it’s a potent antioxidant. Lycopene has anti-inflammatory properties that can help prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease, as well as having anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, it’s refreshing and delicious.

This watermelon smoothie also contains pineapple, which is high in Vitamin C, bromelain, and can help with bloating and digestion thanks to a plethora of digestive enzymes. It’s loaded with beneficial nutrients and is said to have anti-inflammatory benefits. Last but not least, studies show that children who ate pineapples had a significantly lower risk of both viral and bacterial infections. They also had close to four times more disease-fighting white blood cells (granulocytes) than other groups. So, load up on as much pineapple as you like!

I added mango for a good hit of vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. Mangoes are a low-calorie fruit that is high in vitamins A and C as well as folate, B6, iron, calcium, zinc and vitamin E. Mangoes are also a good source of antioxidants and phytochemicals like gallotannins and mangiferin that are said to have cancer fighting properties. Because mangoes aren’t insanely sweet, they’re a great addition to this smoothie because they don’t send the sweetness through the roof. They also add more natural sweetness to this smoothie and give it a creamier consistency.

Watermelon is great for rehydrating, but I prefer coconut water even more, especially if you’ve been out in the humid summer heat. Coconut water contains moderate amounts of potassium, iron, calcium, and Vitamin C. And it’s helpful at replenishing electrolytes lost from sweat. It’s so good for the blood that rumor has it it was used to rehydrate soldiers during World War II when the plasma needed for transfusions was scarce. Although, take that with a grain of salt!

Because the smoothie uses coconut water, which is naturally sweet, and a laundry list of high-sugar fruits, it’s naturally going to be very, very sweet. You can think of it more as a dessert smoothie with health benefits, if you like. (P.S., it also makes pretty fantastic popsicles.) I’ll often add a pinch of cinnamon on top to help prevent blood sugar spikes and the resulting sugar crash. And I definitely wouldn’t drink this in the morning without a bit of protein and fiber to go along with it.
