My husband and I are spending time together at the beach this week. He's a huge fan of watermelon and fortunately it's fresh, plentiful, and delicious this time of year. From our cozy hotel room, we've been dicing up wedges for salads, gazpachos, and smoothies. Though ridiculously simple, this watermelon smoothie has been my favorite breakfast so far this week. I make mine with just a few cubes of watermelon, fresh basil, and a dash of coconut water. There's something about juicy watermelon that is just so refreshing.
