This Watermelon Kiwi Lime Frosty is more than a refreshing summertime sip. It just may remind you of a color lesson: when you blend up pink and green, you get brown! But despite the color, this cool sip it quite tasty. Zesty juicy kiwis combine with frosty frozen watermelon cubes. Accented by bright lime juice and a splash of maple syrup. This refreshing blend goes great with summertime BBQ fare. This is also a perfect way to use up leftover watermelon (if you ave any!) Get the recipe and find out why it’s so healthy…
I’ve been loving watermelon frosty bevies lately. Last night I made a Watermelon Frosty/Margarita..
..and this morning I added kiwi to the mix. (Yes, the color went from pink to brownish. But the flavor is invitingly zippy and perfect after or before a long day in the sun.
Watermelon smoothies are cravable – and easy to make if you are prepared. Simply freeze some watermelon cubes and store them in your freezer for fresh, frosty, pink (or pinkish) smoothies all summer long. So light and hydrating with a subtly sweet flavor. You’ll appreciate watermelon for its mellow tone and totally drinkable appeal.
Frozen Watermelon is also great for making your own watermelon pops.
Healthy Watermelon. And watermelon in general is quite healthy! Low in calories and filled with nutrients vitamins C and A – potassium and even the phytochemical lycopene – most often associated with tomatoes.
And don’t forget those kiwis. Kiwis are incredibly healthy-delicious. Packed with vitamins C and K, folate, potassium and fiber.
This is one healthy, refreshing, easy-to-make sip.
Watermelon Kiwi Lime Frosty
2 cups frozen watermelon
1 1/2 cups fresh kiwis, peeled
2-3 Tbsp lime juice (about 1 lime)
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup water
optional: 1/2 banana to smooth out the zesty flavor

tips: add in more water if needed – be sure to chop your watermelon cubes small so they will blend easily in the blender. Works best with a high speed blender. The banana is optional – but will add a subtle creaminess to the taste and texture.
