In anticipation for the warm weather, it’s safe to say it’s time to brighten things up, from our wardrobes to our plates. With our busy schedules though, it can be difficult to spruce up the menu and entice our taste buds. Smoothies are the perfect source to get in our superfoods on the go. Here’s a blend that can compliment your favorite breakfast, or as a post-workout refresher.



o 1 cup of watermelon
o 1 sprig of fresh mint leaves
o 1 cup of almond/coconut milk (Blue Diamond Almond Breeze is great)
dash of cinnamon
o Handful of ice (or frozen watermelon chunks)

o Blend until smooth & enjoy.


Replace milk with coconut water to emphasize the watermelon taste. If you prefer a creamier drink, stick to a dairy-free milk of your preference.

Try adding a handful of spinach to give your smoothies a boost of nutrients. It’s virtually tasteless so you won’t even know it’s there – apart from the color!

Next time you have left over raw fruits and veggies, throw them in the freezer instead of the trash and add them to your smoothies. They create the same consistency as ice cubes, giving you a refreshing drink.
