I usually stick to my normal juice and smoothie blends in the morning, but I found myself with an abundance of watermelon (a fantastic problem to have!) and wanted to add it to anything and everything I could.
I noticed that a fellow Nashville blogger mentioned on Instagram that she had been adding watermelon to her morning juice blends, and I was immediately inspired. First I tried the watermelon in my regular green blend: subbing out strawberries for melon, but with the banana and coconut/almond milk it was a little too sweet for me (but delicious! Maybe best for a midday sweet treat). Then I realized how much I would like the watermelon, cucumber combination — so much more than I liked the popular Bath and Body Works scent from middle school. If you love summertime watermelon definitely give it a shot to star in your morning blend.
