Tropical Watermelon Splash Shakeology

Tropical Watermelon Splash Shakeology

I buy watermelons all summer long, using half to make this Watermelon, Feta, and Kalamata Olive Salad or Grilled Watermelon Wedges, and the rest I save for my Shakeology smoothies.

I especially like this Tropical Watermelon Splash recipe that blends watermelon with Tropical Strawberry Plant-based Vegan Shakeology: It’s light and refreshing, and the flavor of the watermelon really shines.

For even brighter flavor, finish it off with a sprinkling of orange zest. Freshly cut watermelon is perfect for smoothies, but I also like to freeze leftover watermelon and use the frozen chunks in place of ice cubes in my smoothies.

When the end of the season approaches, I stock up on melons to cut and freeze, so I can continue to enjoy the flavor of summer during the winter.

How to Freeze Watermelon

Watermelons are made almost entirely of water, so they’re excellent candidates for freezing.

Remove the rind and scoop out the flesh with a melon baller, or cut your watermelon into cubes. If your watermelon has seeds, remove them before freezing.

Arrange watermelon pieces in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper (so they don’t stick) and then place in the freezer.

Once the watermelon is frozen, pack it into freezer bags or containers and store in the freezer until needed.

Frozen watermelon pieces can be added to smoothies, pureed for a quick sorbet, or eaten for a refreshing snack when slightly thawed.
