Watermelon & Mint Smoothie

So cool and refreshing, mint brings just a little extra something to this cool watermelon beverage.


 

Happy Secret Recipe Club reveal day!  This month I was assigned Nayna’s blog, simply.food.  Nayna is “a ‘homecook’ without culinary school training striving to make [her] dishes feel complete without being complicated. ”  She is also a vegetarian in the UK who was actually assigned my blog back in April!  She had so many delicious sounding recipes on her site but I’m in kind of a smoothie kick right now so that’s where my focus went.

I ultimately decided on her Watermelon Smoothie because it just sounded so cool and refreshing.  And I also added the optional mint which, I must say, should not be optional.  It made me wish I had a porch with a rocking chair so I could sip it while watching the sun set.  I enjoyed it just as much, though, sitting on my sofa watching “Agents of SHIELD.”

Like my goblets?  These are my absolute favorite glasses and I wish I had more but 2 are really enough.

I only used a quarter of the watermelon I bought so I have lots of melon to eat over the next few days.  Oh, it sucks to be me.  Hee hee!  Mr. O does not like melon so it’s mine, all mine!
