Hydrate When It's Hot

Pinkalicious Smoothie

Makes two servings

On those rushed mornings when we need a quick grab and go breakfast, this smoothie is ideal. We simply throw the ingredients in a blender, blend and pour it into our Kleen Kanteen bottles. My daughter named this smoothie Pinkalicious because of its pretty pink color and her obsession with the book series of the same name. But don’t worry, boys will love it, too!

½ cup watermelon
3 frozen strawberries
½ frozen banana
½ cup of coconut water
½ a scoop of protein powder of choice

1. Put all the fruits in a blender.
2. Add protein powder.
3. Add coconut water and ice for desired coldness, if your fruit isn’t frozen.
4. Blend.

Coconut Water
It is nature’s Gatorade, a great source of potassium and other electrolytes. Coconut water actually has more potassium than two bananas. Potassium helps your body by keeping it hydrated, which prevents cramping when doing intense physical activities.


  1. This sounds so amazing and refreshing!
