Watermelon Frosty

Want a cold and refreshing frosty to get you through your day? Try this Watermelon Frosty! It’s packed with potassium, energy-revving carbs and vitamins A, C, and B6. Adding chia seeds will bring an extra bite to the frosty and will pump up the fiber, protein, and omega fatty acids. The best way to do this is freeze watermelon in chunks to make it deliciously frosty--then you don't need ice, just a little water!  Once blended, you simply fold the chia seeds in (see directions)! Enjoy!

  • 2 1/2 cups frozen watermelon cubes
  • 1/2+ cup water
  • 1 small lemon, squeezed
  • 1 lime, squeezed
  • 1 fresh banana
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
Directions: 1. Blend all ingredients together. If it seems a little too thick, add slightly more water. 2. Once blended, fold in the chia seeds (about 1/2 tsp per serving glass.  Note, fold them in after blending - you can't blend the seeds with the frosty because they will break down - making them look less seedy and more grainy. But don't worry - these "seeds" are soft and bubbly since they plump up when they hit the melting frosty. Allow your seeded frosty to sit for just a minute or so before consuming for more chia "plumping" action.
