This really does taste like a margarita. A mouthwatering watermelon margarita, green monster smoothie style. You know, with that tangy sweetness that makes you beg for more? I think my husband bragged about this smoothie for a good 10 minutes to one of our friends who was considering green monster smoothies...among my other awesome smoothies! This is the second summer I’ve been cutting up watermelons and sticking them in the freezer. You don’t really need it to be frozen, but I love that I can drink this out of season too with a little extra preparation.

Preparation

  1. Blend it all together!

Notes

If you aren't using a high-speed blender, blend the greens in the orange juice first and hemp seeds (unless you are using a powdered protein instead). That way you will have a smoother texture.
