Watermelon Smoothie Recipe

I love watermelon.  And I love smoothies and juices.  So naturally, I love watermelon smoothies and juices.  I use the terms “smoothie” and “juice” interchangeably here because when you blend up watermelon, it tends to separate pretty soon after and you’re left with juice on the bottom, and a smoothie texture with the pulp at the top.  Both equally delicious.

When I was younger, my parents would take me to a Chinese cafe that had a daily melon juice special for a mere $1.  Sometimes it was honeydew.  Sometimes it was cantaloupe.  But it was usually watermelon.  I always had to order one.  Especially if it was watermelon.  As I got older though, I ordered it less and less because it became too sweet for my taste.  The reason being that they not only added milk, but simple syrup as well.

When I was gifted a gigantic Costco watermelon on a particularly hot day last week, though, I had sudden nostalgic urge to make one of those watermelon smoothies.  What I didn’t have a craving for, though, was the added sugar.  Would it taste as good without it?  Well, as I found out — yes.  Yes, it does, because this happened:

Since starting Jamie Eason’s LiveFit Trainer last month, I’ve been jone’sing for some treats.  I have the occasional chocolate protein bar, but those can be sugary and more caloric, plus — I was really just craving chocolate CAKE.  So I started Googling and discovered the most amazing chocolate protein cake recipe ever.  It’s 100% clean and high in protein.  Since discovering this recipe, I’ve baked this about half a dozen times using several variations with different ingredients and sizes (don’t worry, I’m not eating it all by myself; I share!).

Lemon Grapefruit Arugula Salad Recipe

Or citrus arugula salad, if you please!  Not that I don’t like salads — actually, quite the contrary; I really like salads — but I’ve never liked a salad this much before.  I’m constantly craving it and looking forward to it to the point where it’s almost a guilty pleasure, even though it’s a very light, healthy salad.
