Watermelon Recipes

Watermelon is one of my favorite summer foods and I love using it for different recipes. It's also fairly low cal which is even better. I'm posting a few of my favorite recipes for the memorial day weekend!
Watermelon and Valentina Seasoning-one of my fav healthy snacks

Watermelon/Mint Salad
-Large bowl of cubed watermelon (usually half a watermelon works)
-1/2 cup crumbled feta
-Juice from one lime
-Handful of mint leaves

Cube your watermelon and then top with the feta/lime/mint, it's super easy and super yummy

Watermelon Salad (one of my favorite summer lunches, good for parties too you'll just need to add to the quantity)
-Spring mix lettuce
-Handful of cubed watermelon
-Handful of crumbled feta
-Handful of shaved almonds
-Handful of mint leaves
-Handful chopped asparagus
-Handful shredded carrots
-4 oz grilled chicken seasoned with garlic salt
-1 to 2 tbsp of olive oil
-1 to 2 tbsp of balsamic

Wash your veggies and mix it all up!

Watermelon Juice
-Just blend cubed watermelon! You can add ice to make it a watermelon slushy. This is such a refreshing, low cal juice. Use as much as your blender can hold.

Watermelon Sorbet
-3 to 6 cups of cubed watermelon (freeze overnight), amount depends on how much your blender or food processor can hold. A food processor works better.
-Fresh lime juice, use half a lime for every 3 cups of watermelon

Just mix this all up in your processor or blender on a slow setting and eat right away!

Another Watermelon Salad Option
-Large bowl of cubed watermelon
-Lime juice from one lime
-Season with Tajin seasoning to taste (I also like the Valentina chile lime seasoning)

Mix it all up, this is one of my FAVORITES!

Enjoy and enjoy the long weekend! Tag me if you try one of these recipes!
