A good way to get fruit your fruit in is to make a smoothie. A smoothie is a drink made from raw fruit or vegetables with a liquid base such as water, milk, or non-dairy milk products.

People love the creamy texture. They are also a great thirst quencher and are very diet-friendly. That’s why the popularity of smoothies has increased in recent years.

If you love making smoothies at home, then this is a perfect recipe to make! This watermelon strawberry smoothie recipe is the thirst-quencher you are looking for on a warm afternoon.

Although fruit has natural sugars, you can add sweeteners such as honey, sugar, agave, or molasses if you like a lot of sweetness. Zero-calorie sweeteners work too. Stevia and Monk fruit extract would be delicious in this drink.

Kinds of Fruit Smoothies

There are two kinds of fruit smoothies. First is the classic fruit smoothie — which involves adding ice cubes to fruit. The ice cubes act as the binder and as the cold element.

However, the second type of smoothie doesn’t need ice cubes at all. The cold element comes from freezing the fruit. The frozen fruit also acts as a thickener in the smoothie recipe. This technique uses the fruit’s natural sugar to add sweetness to the smoothie without adding any sugar. This is a healthier way of preparing smoothies. It’s great if you are on a whole foods diet.

Smoothie Nutrition Facts

Smoothies are also great as a meal replacement. Drink one or two each day as a way to lose weight. They are especially great to replace that caloric donut or bagel breakfast.

Watermelon is very hydrating and is loaded with lycopene, an antioxidant. Strawberries are a good source of potassium. So, there’s a lot of nutrition in this beverage.

Enjoy this smoothie alone or as part of your meal. You can pair this luscious smoothie with the following dishes as a light and refreshing accompaniment.

Citrusy Fish Escabeche Recipe

Smoked Lamb Casserole

Grilled Pork Roulade

Any herb that would be tasty with watermelon would also be good in this drink. Mint, tarragon, basil and rosemary can all be added for an herbaceous kick.

Have you ever enjoy watermelon with balsamic vinegar? It’s a great but surprising combination. Try adding just a touch of vinegar to this beverage for a unique twist.

Wine Pairing​ for a Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie

This recipe is even better spiked. This is a great afternoon drink to share with friends. Make a big pitcher ahead of time.

You can add a half cup of fruity white wine to this fruit smoothie recipe. You want a light and refreshing wine with this smoothie. Avoid white wines that have been aged in oak. Also, steer clear of wines with grassy or vegetal flavors. Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc, Chablis aren’t good choices for this drink.

Warm wine regions produce white wines with more tropical flavors. If banana and pineapple flavors sound good to you, look for a wine from a warm place. California and Washington offer white wines with these flavors.

If you love peach, try adding Albariño or Moscato to your smoothie. Moscato is generally a sweet wine, so you’ll add stone fruit flavor and a bit of sweetness too.

Avoid aged or ice wines. These tend to be thicker. This is already a thick beverage. You don’t want to seize it up even more with a syrupy wine.

Check out the following wine suggestions below if you want to add something special to this watermelon strawberry smoothie.

  • Chardonnay
  • Marsanne
  • Viognier
  • Pinot Gris
  • Moscato
