This smoothie is sort of a hybrid between creamy and thick and frosty and fruity. It’s got the look and taste of a frosty, summery concoction, but the addition of chia seeds and avocado give it hints of creaminess and a thick texture. It’s a perfect light breakfast or a refreshing afternoon snack option. And it’s a perfect vehicle for two of the most highly anticipated summer fruits: ripe berries and juicy watermelon. Whether inflammation concerns you or not, hopefully you’ll find a way to incorporate this cooling treat into your day soon.
- 1 heaping cup watermelon chunks (be generous!)
- 1 1/2 cups frozen mixed berries
- 1 inch piece ginger, peeled and chopped (if you’re using a conventional blender, you may wish to grate the ginger before adding it, so that it blends more easily)
- 3/4 cup coconut water
- 2 teaspoons chia seeds
- 1/4 Hass avocado
Blend all ingredients and serve.
