Why You Will Love This Watermelon Smoothie Bowl

This tropical watermelon smoothie is ideal for people who don’t often make smoothies.

It is a super simple recipe, that requires 3 ingredients and 5 minutes of your time.

Other reasons why I think you will love this watermelon smoothie bowl include:

  1. Refreshing Summer Vibes: The frozen watermelon gives this smoothie a cool, refreshing taste that embodies the essence of summer, making it a perfect smoothie bowl to beat the heat.
  2. Natural Energy Boost: The natural sugars in banana and watermelon provide a quick, healthy energy boost, ideal for a morning start or a midday pick-me-up.
  3. Nutrient-Rich: Despite its simplicity, this smoothie packs a nutritional punch, offering vitamins like Vitamin C and B6, potassium, and more, supporting overall health.
  4. Hydration Power: Watermelon’s high water content, combined with coconut milk, makes this smoothie exceptionally hydrating, helping you stay refreshed and replenished.
  5. Dairy-Free Delight: Using coconut milk not only adds a tropical twist but also ensures this smoothie is dairy-free, catering to those with dietary restrictions or vegan preferences.
  6. Sweet Without Guilt: The natural sweetness from the fruits means there’s no need for added sugars, making this smoothie a wholesome, guilt-free treat any time of the day.

Optional Smoothie Variations & Recipe Notes

Some tasty variations that you could try, which I have personally tested, include:

  1. No Banana Smoothie Bowl: Not everyone is a fan of bananas, I get it. Swap them for mango or pineapple, 1/2 cup is plenty.
  2. High Protein Smoothie Bowl: Add a bit of protein by adding 1 scoop of protein powder. Preferably unsweetened and unflavored. I personally used brown rice powder.
  3. Throw In Some Greens: Incorporate a handful of kale or spinach for added nutrients, without impacting the taste.
  4. Berry Version: Add an extra 1/2 cup of mixed berries, or replace the banana with berries for a berry infusion.

Fresh Watermelon Smoothie Bowl

When I shared this recipe on my YouTube channel, I had a lot of requests to share a way to make this smoothie bowl using fresh watermelon.

My recipe calls for frozen watermelon.

To make a fresh watermelon smoothie bowl, do the following:

  1. Use 1 cup of fresh watermelon instead of frozen.
  2. Use 1 1/2 cups of frozen mango, instead of 1 ripe unfrozen banana.
  3. Use 1/3 cup of coconut milk as the original recipe states.

This way you can enjoy a watermelon smoothie bowl, without having to worry about freezing watermelon.

But, unfortunately, frozen fruit is needed. It’s a crucial component when making smoothie bowls.

Recommended Smoothie Bowl Toppings:

You can add whatever toppings you like.

I can, however, recommend some of my personal favorites for this specific smoothie bowl:

  • Coconut Flakes
  • Chia Seeds
  • Crunchy Granola
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Sliced Kiwi Fruit

Equipment Needed For The Recipe


I personally love using either a Nutribullet 600 or a food processor, like a Ninja food processor.

Blender Type Suitability:
Nutribullet
Vitamix Blender
BlendJet X
Ninja Blender
Oster Blender X
Hamilton Blender
AMZChef Blender X
Wamife Blender X
Ninja Food Processor
Kitchen Aid Food Chopper X
Hamilton Beach Food Processor

The key to making smoothie bowls is a high-speed blender.

The most budget-friendly blender for smoothie bowls I can recommend is the Nutribullet 600.
