The Minty Melon Smoothie Bowl

The Minty Melon Smoothie Bowl Recipe

By VegetaFull

🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes


2 cups of seedless watermelon, frozen and cubed

2 large ripe bananas

1 ripe pear, cored and quartered

½ cup of raw cashew nuts

2 tablespoons of ground chia seeds

1/8 teaspoon of fine sea salt

2 large medjool dates, pitted

¼ cup (about 10 large) peppermint leaves


1First, cube 2 cups of seedless watermelon and pop them in the freezer. You can do this in big batches ahead of time. Add the frozen watermelon, bananas and pear to the blender container.

2Add your healthy fats: the cashews and ground chia seeds followed by the dates and salt. Soaking your cashews the night before will make for a creamier texture but regular cashews will blend up nicely too. You can purchase ground chia seeds or grind your own by placing the seeds in a spice or small coffee grinder and blending for about 10 seconds.

3Securely attach the lid to your container and blend util creamy, starting on low speed and working up to medium speed. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides of the container or use the tamper (with a Vitamix) to push the food down and around toward the blade. This will take about a minute or more, depending on what type of blender you are using.

4Lastly add your mint leaves and blend for about 10 seconds until the leaves look like bright green flecks in a sea of pink. Be sure to use peppermint leaves which give the purest and sweetest mint taste. (Spearmint leaves are less minty and can give a grassy taste to your smoothie bowl.) Pour the pretty pink mixture which will be the consistency of a thick smoothie into three bowls and top with watermelon wedges and coconut flakes. Garnish with mint leaves just for fun!
