Last week, I faced a dire situation: Mark and I decided to make mid-afternoon margaritas, and his “on the rocks special” just wasn’t cutting it. With our new refrigerator’s crushed ice maker on the job, I was expecting an icy, beach-worthy drink with everything but the sand. It kept me dreaming. But, with a blender bought in the same hour of the first margarita attempt, the ultimate frozen fruity drink was a reality and we sailed off into buzzed bliss before 5 o’clock. Sometimes it’s just what you’ve gotta do!
So, since I bought the blender, I’ve been experimenting with all kinds of fruity drinks, and this smoothie has turned out to be one of my absolute favorites! Full of juicy strawberries, luscious watermelon and a banana for a tropical kick, it was the drink of my dreams, and a healthy one at that. Just pulse all the fruit together, add a little milk and you’re done! This scrumptious vitamin C and potassium rich smoothie makes for a tasty breakfast, snack or midday pick-me-up. And, of course, it tastes even better when you drink it from a fancy glass!
Watermelon, Strawberry and Banana Smoothie
- 5 cups seedless watermelon chunks
- 1 ripe banana, peeled
- 6 strawberries, rinsed and hulled
- 1/3 cup milk, any kind
- Liquefy all fruit together in a large blender. Add milk and blend until smooth. Serve immediately, or chill in the refrigerator and serve cold.
What a wonderful drink. I love that it has 3 delicious fruits and with the addition of skim milk this is a dieters delight!
Looks great, Georgia. Once again, I’m inspired to throw some watermelon in my blender! :)
What a great combination of flavors, perfect for these hot, hot summer days!
Yes to this after my workout today!
Looks almost too gorgeous to drink… almost :) What a perfect drink for the hot summer!
All the flavors in this smoothie just scream summer! :) We make smoothies every day for breakfast, so I’m sure we’ll be trying this combination soon!
Yay to your new blender, and yay to healthy fruity dessert/snacks!
Winning flavour combination! And it looks absolutely stunning! Wonderful. I have missed your inspiration. So happy to stop by.
I love this because it is beautiful, and because I have all the ingredients at home so I don’t have to stop at the store before I satisfy my craving for it. :)
Delicious! I am always on the hunt for new and fun smoothie recipes!

I just sent my husband to the store and now I’m really wishing I got him to pick up all these ingredients. This sounds soo refreshing! Never would have thought of it.
Love smoothies. This is a great combination of flavors, thanks for sharing.
Ooh, nummy! We had something similar last night, pureeing up watermelon and adding mint. So intoxicatingly good!
You don’t seem watermelon in too many smoothies, so good on you for making a winner of a recipe with it!
I love how you dress it up in the fancy glass. Makes even a smoothie so glam.
