¼ watermelon, peeled and diced (or a 12-ounce-sized container)
1 cucumber, peeled and cut up
¼ cup mint leaves
½ cup of ice
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until “slushy” consistency. (I like mine a little chunky.) . Garnish with mint leaf.
1 medium avocado cut in small chunks
1/2 cup diced fresh tomatoes
1/2 cup diced yellow or red bell pepper
1/4 cup diced red onion
¼ cup chopped cilantro
Juice of half a 1 lime (or more to taste)
½ tsp sea salt (or to taste)
1-2 tsp chipotle or chili pepper (or to taste)
Mix all ingredients together, blending liquid well while ingredients remain chunky.
Serving suggestion: Serve as a side to grilled fish or chicken!
