Purple Rain Smoothie

Purple Rain Smoothie

Joel and I were making lunch yesterday when he asked for a smoothie. I was happy to oblige, so I pulled out our end-of-the season watermelon (still sweet and juicy!) and our beginning-of-the-season purple grapes. I used some fresh squeezed orange juice to balance out the sweetness and came up with a wonderfully bubbly smoothie! He was excited to make his sisters one for their dinner, and did a great job of instructing me on what to do to remake his new smoothie creation.

  • 2 cups watermelon, chunked

  • 1 cup purple grapes

  • 1/2 orange, juiced

  • 1/4-1/3 cup water (enough to get the blender going)

Place all ingredients into a blender and mix. Makes approx. 10 oz. Enjoy your lycopene, vitamin C, resveratrol, and manganese mix!
