Ideal for an afternoon cool down, these watermelon smoothies are made creamy with coconut milk and flavored with lime juice and fresh mint.
By Lynsey Walker
If I am being honest I don’t really eat smoothies that much in the morning these days, but rather prefer to turn to them in the afternoon when the summer sun is shining strong. They are a refreshing and cold, and a sweet treat to look forward to as a pick me up in that lull that hits both belly and mind at 3pm.
Frozen watermelon has been my jam these days. I assume it is something about the water content that makes it turn almost slushie like when you blend it up.
I like to sing the praises of coconut milk and watermelon for their skin boosting properties. The lauric acid and lycopene in their respective foods are damn fine at protecting your skin from sun’s damaging rays, and will keep your skin radiating beauty even if the weather cramps the look of your locks (#summerproblems). Thanks watermelon smoothie.

- 1 cup full fat coconut milk
