2 cups watermelon
2 tbs hemp seeds
1 cup coconut water (or filtered water)
8 raspberries (optional – see note below)
- Put all of the ingredients into the blender or NutriBullet and blend. Make sure the smoothie is served cold.
This smoothie is delicious, nutritious and versatile. It can be added to a source of protein, like eggs or sausages for breakfast, or given as an afternoon snack to keep energetic babies & toddlers (like my girls) fueled, hydrated and happy with balanced blood sugar levels. Dad likes it as a post training drink, as it contains natural sources of glucose, fat, protein & electrolytes for muscle restoration.
If you’re using regular water, you might not need the raspberries – I added them at the last second because I found the smoothie too sweet, and it’s summertime, so I had them to hand. It also helped to add a slight hue to the caramel color of this smoothie.
