This. Oh my word, this. A frosty Blueberry Watermelon Smoothie is exactly what I needed.
I’m just not sure where it has been all my life!
Here’s how they came to be. You see, I’m still working my way through that watermelon that I shared the story about for my Watermelon Salad with Watermelon Vinaigrette and then again with the Watermelon Feta Appetizer Bites. I texted my husband to see what he wanted for lunch and he said, “it is so hot, I really just want a smoothie.”
Bingo. I knew just the perfect new smoothie recipe to whip up for him. What’s more refreshing than a juicy watermelon. Right?
So, I tossed a bunch of blueberries and watermelon chunks into my blender, gave it a whirl, and then added in some ice to smooth things out even more.
No fancy straws needed for this smoothie either. I knew the Mister has no use for them and these smoothies really were so beautiful without adding any other sort of frills to them.
Even the ever so picky Little Buddy enjoyed them.
Here’s my recipe for Blueberry Watermelon Smoothies. You need ’em.
Blueberry Watermelon Smoothie Recipe
- 3 cups blueberries
- 3 cups cubed watermelon
- 1 1/2 cups ice
- Add blueberries and watermelon to the container of a blender. Blend on high for about 40 seconds or until completely pureed. Then, stop blender and remove the lid. Add ice to the puree and secure the lid back onto the container. Turn the blender on high for 40 more seconds or until completely blended and smooth with no ice pieces remaining.
- Serve immediately.

Don’t tell Little Buddy.
Just made this for my hubby and he loved it!! Two thumbs up!! Thank you!!
So glad he loved it!
Try adding a couple of drops of rosewater. Amazing effect.
Sooo good totally doing this again!
I added spinach in mine. Wow yummy!
Very refreshing on a hot day
Oh yes, I think so too! And it’s been so hot lately it’s great to make these to cool down! Thanks Ginger!
Absolutely amazing recipe taste terrific I’m sure can’t wait to make it
I did use three(3) cups of blueberries, but I just had enough watermelon (but it wasn’t three(3 cups) .My smoothie was gooooooood!!!!!
Thank you so much! I am excited to try and its so easy. I have a lot of watermelon and was wondering how I can consume it before it would go bad. This is a great idea and I think I can convince my husband to try it.
Hope you and your husband enjoy it, Michele!
That seems like a lot! What’s the recipe for a single guy who lives alone just trying to get into smoothies?
If you only want one smoothie, divide the recipe by 6 since there are 6 servings. So it would be 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup watermelon, and 1/4 cup ice. Hope you enjoy!
