300 g strawberries
a few leaves of fresh mint
1. Cut the watermelon into chunks and freeze for 3-4 hours.
2. Wash the strawberries, remove the leaves and place the fruit in a blender.
3. Add the frozen watermelon then blend with the strawberries and a few mint leaves. Blend until smooth.

You can add some agave syrup or honey for a sweeter flavour. You can also add a little greek yogurt if you prefer a creamier smoothie.
Smoothie molto freddo di anguria e fragole.
Per 2 porzioni
400 g di polpa di anguria dolce e matura (prima di pesare levate scorza e semi)
300 g di fragole
qualche foglia di menta fresca
1. Tagliate l’anguria a pezzi (di 5 cm circa) e congelate per almeno 3-4 ore.
2. Lavate le fragole, rimuovete le foglie e mettete la frutta in un frullatore.
3. Frullate bene l’anguria ghiacciata con le fragole e qualche foglia di menta.
4. Servite lo smoothie in due bicchieri grandi, con alcune cannucce.
È possibile aggiungere un po ‘di sciroppo d’agave o di miele, se si preferisce un sapore più dolce. Aggiungete un po’ di yogurt greco per una consistenza più cremosa.

Yes yes yes, this is perfect. The best summery fruit is watermelon so I’m always looking for new ways to use it! This looks so delicious and creative. http://www.ourfoodieappetite.com/popovers-on-the-square-portsmouth-nh/
Thank you so much! I thought it would work well with fresh strawberries and mint 🙂 I just loved the combination X
Oh my goodness Serena, I want this today! Gorgeous vibrant red and so refreshing.
It’s so hot in Italy right now! …I had to think of something! 😉 XX
I saw the picture and just had to read your post. The colour is amazing. The flavours are my favourite, no doubt highly refreshing. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I glad that you like it…It was delicious 😉
How do you manage to get those shots with the camera?!?! Incredible talent!
Wow! Thank you for the big compliment! I am really glad that you like my work, thank you!!! I use some studio lights, they work really well with this kind of photographs.
So beautiful Serena!! We had a watermelon drink on our trips to China, and when I’ve looked for recipes, they’ve always seemed too complicated (lots of straining…)– but this looks perfect– the strawberries would make it more interesting and it’s so frosty cold. Cant’ wait to try it!
Thank you Rhonda! I am glad that you like the recipe! I kept it as simple as possible….It is not as smooth as a proper smoothie, but it is very refreshing, healthy and tasty 🙂 The strawberries go really well with the watermelon… Let me know if you like it XX
OK- I have the grand girls here– we can whip up a little batch this week.
Give them a big hug for me 😉
