Makes 1 large or 2 smaller servings
2 1/4 cups (550 ml) diced watermelon
1 cup (250 ml) hulled fresh or frozen strawberries
1/4 cup (60 ml) avocado
1 to 2 teaspoons (5 - 10 ml) pure maple syrup or 1 or 2 pitted Medjool dates, to taste (optional)
Diced kiwi or grapes
Freeze 1 cup (250 ml) of the watermelon (and the hulled strawberries, if using fresh) overnight, or for several hours.
In a high -speed blender, blend the remaining 1¼ cups (300 ml) fresh watermelon on low-medium speed until watery.
Add the frozen watermelon, frozen strawberries, and avocado. Blend until smooth. If you have a Vitamix, I recommend using the tamper to help it blend.
Taste and add the maple syrup, if desired. Blend again until smooth.
Pour the smoothie into a shallow bowl. If desired, add the toppings in the pattern of a rainbow, as shown in the picture.
