Watermelon and Basil Smoothie Recipe

by katerina on July 2, 2009

Three reasons this is great, it is super refreshing on a hot day, uses in season produce and is good for you.

Plus, I bet you didn’t you know Watermelon is full of iron? I totally had no idea, but it has the same amount of iron as spinach but is easier to absorb. Sweet. The flavour of this is very delicate but you can definitely pick out the raspberries and watermelon and just the slightest hint of basil. So see, this is totally good for you, even if you add a touch of Vodka.

Since the Presto Pasta roundup will go up tomorrow, I thought I would post this today. Plus, I may have gone through an entire mini watermelon in the last three days just by myself, and I wanted to share the fun. Enjoy the holiday weekends everybody!
