“Fresh ginger and turmeric make this watermelon smoothie recipe a super-trendy and healthy drink. Serve it over ice for a refreshing way to start your day.”


    • 4 cups watermelon chunks, seeded
    • ½ cup water
    • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped peeled fresh ginger
    • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped peeled fresh turmeric (see Tip) or 1 teaspoon ground
    • 4 teaspoons honey
    • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin coconut oil
    • ground pepper


  • 1 Combine watermelon, water, lemon juice, ginger, turmeric, honey, oil and pepper in a blender. Puree until smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Look for fresh turmeric in natural-foods stores, near its similar-looking relative, fresh ginger. Remove the skin with a vegetable peeler. You can swap 1 Tbsp. finely grated fresh for 1 tsp. dried and vice versa.
