Watermelon Mint Smoothie

A highly refreshing smoothie for the preparation of which you need only 5 minutes and a blender. Watermelon quenches thirst not only on hot days. You can enrich the smoothie with strawberries and lemon for an extra boost of antioxidant vitamins.

Ingredients for 4 servings:

♦1 kg ripe watermelon
♦200 g strawberries
♦1 bunch of mint
♦juice from 1/2 a lemon
♦1 tbsp xylitol / 1 tbsp honey
♦A few ice cubes

Rinse all the fruits thoroughly, remove strawberry stems and watermelon seeds. Put all the fruits into a tall container, add lemon juice, a few ice cubes and a small bunch of mint leaves. Blend until frothy. If the smoothie seems too sour, add 1 tablespoon of xylitol or honey, blend again. Serve with fresh mint leaves.

Good to know!
The smoothie can be also served as a light hot day cocktail. Just add a glass of white wine. Enjoy.
