Pretty In Pink Smoothie

I know the title is cheesy, but not only is this smoothie pretty and pink, it is also delicious, light, and the perfect drink to cool you off when you are sitting by the pool, laying out with a good book, or procrastinating studying (my RD exam is in how many weeks…..yikes!). Also, did I mention its only 75 calories? I love smoothies during the summer, especially when it starts to get hot and muggy. Ohio is purely into extreme weather this year. Let me know what you think if you give it a try! Also, don’t fret if it’s not as thick as your usual smoothies; watermelon is about 90-92% water, so it is going to be a little watery!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup ice water
  • 1/2 cup Carbmaster vanilla yogurt (Kroger brand; you can substitute with another low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt if you’d like)
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 3/4 cup diced watermelon
  • 1/2 tsp honey (I just eye-balled it!)

Blend your ingredients until smooth, and top with a few extra frozen raspberries!

Tip for smoothie making: Always add your liquid first; this give the blender a little help with breaking down all the rest of your ingredients and makes it move a little faster and smoother!
