This Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie Bowl is a refreshing and vibrant blend of juicy fresh watermelon, frozen strawberries, mango and fresh lime juice. With additional nutrients from frozen cauliflower and optional vanilla protein, this bowl is a super satisfying summer treat!
You know it’s that glorious time of year coming when the beautiful fresh melons start appearing! And what’s more refreshing than watermelon in the sunshine (actually is there any time that watermelons AREN’T refreshing)?
This pretty-in-pink smoothie bowl is the best of warm weather / tropical vibes, with sweet strawberries and mango, and bright citrusy lime juice. We also use some coconut milk and frozen bananas for a yummy, creamy factor that screams tropical as well! It’s topped with coconut, diced watermelon and fresh lime for the ultimate refreshing summertime experience.
A delicious variety of beautiful melons have arrived at Sprouts Farmers Market to make it a snap to whip up a perfect summer smoothie bowl like this one. This perfectly ripe and juicy watermelon is the star of the show here! We also picked up the YUMMIEST cantaloupe ever while we were there. And we can’t wait to try the other unique melon varieties at Sprouts. Get this…all throughout June, they’ll have up to 15 melon varieties to choose from. We love melon in our house for nourishing and delicious snacks, and for amazing smoothies / smoothie bowls like this one.
I can always find the fresh and vibrant produce at Sprouts that I need for yummy cold or hot dishes. The citrus and bananas were on point for this too! We stock up on the quality bananas, lemons and limes every time, since we can’t get enough! We go through them so quickly throughout the year, but especially for refreshing treats like smoothies in the warmer months.
How This Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie Bowl Comes Together!
Start by cutting your watermelon, carefully! I made large circular slices starting from one end to about halfway into the watermelon. Then, lay the watermelon down on the flat side and make further slices. Cut the flesh away from the outer rind, into 2 cm chunks, approximately. No need to precise here with your dicing!
You’ll need 4 cups of diced watermelon for this recipe. Half will go into the blender with the other ingredients. The other half is to top the smoothie, so it’s up to you on the size of the watermelon topping.
Then the other ingredients will go into the blender like the frozen banana, cauliflower, mango, vegan vanilla protein powder (love the Sprouts brand!), strawberry, banana, lime juice, coconut milk, and mango. There’s also a bit of water to get things moving in the blender.
The coconut milk is full-fat for extra creaminess. But, feel free to use ALL water or ALL coconut milk. Other options would be to use “lite” coconut milk in the can, or carton coconut milk, soy milk, almond milk, even oat milk.
Blend everything, which could take a few rounds of blending and scraping down the sides. You can add more liquid to further thin the smoothie. Then serve the smoothie in bowls, and top with the lime wedges/slices, coconut, and watermelon chunks.
