Watermelon Shake – Low calories summer drinks

Summer is here, it is hot and you need refreshment. Obviously, you don’t want to drink your calories to stay fit on the beach. Luckily, this watermelon shake is an extremely low calorie smoothie. Besides, it is loaded with nutrient and vitamins from not only watermelon but also cucumber and  strawberries.

Is watermelon shake diabetic friendly?

While one serve of this shake contains 11 g net carbs, watermelon has a low glycemic index and is great food choice for diabetic.

How to make a low calorie shake?

Originally a shake is made of milk and ice cream which are both high calories food. Alternatively this watermelon shake use low calorie unsweetened almond milk – I love to use Almond Breeze – to add a creamy milky texture to your shake with only 40 kcal per cup. Plus, the ice cream is replaced by ice so no extra calorie either.

  1. You mention a touch of cucumber to add some greens but you forgot to add the cucumber to the ingredients list and how much?Also is this Low Carb,Low Sugar?

    • Sorry for the missing ingredient! I updated the recipe card for you. It is really optional to add cucumber but I like the fresh taste it adds to the blend. I usually add 2 inch of cucumber, skin on. I wouldn’t say it is a low carb smoothie but a good carb smoothie. It only contains low sugar fruits and dairy free milk – no lactose and extra sugar. The nutrition panel is provided after the recipe card. Enjoy the smoothie ! xoxo Carine.

  2. Have you ever used coconut milk instead of the almond milk? I have a severe nut allergy and would love to try this, but don’t want to buy it and it taste awful

    • Hi Krystal, I love almond milk and I am sure that this smoothie will taste really great with unsweetened coconut milk as well. I would recommend to use the packet milk – not the canned one that could be thicker and higher in fat too. Enjoy the lovely pink smoothie ! xoxo Carine.

  3. Two days back I did a watermelon and peach smoothie so I can totally relate when you say refreshing summer drink!!! Ahhh I loved this gorgeous pink colour and I am making the most out of summers here in NZ

    • Simple smoothies are always the best, right? I love my afternoon smoothie too and this one is absolutely amazing. You’ll love it.

    • So true ! cucumber will make a great addition to this recipe ! Almond Breeze has always be my favorite almond milk too. I love their range and taste!

  4. I hope you’re enjoying your leave! This looks really delicious – I might make it for the kids for Valentine’s Day (and for me). I love watermelon but I’ve never tried it in a smoothie!

    • I enjoy my maternity leave and my awesome little baby Luka. I am still trying to reply to my comment daily and connect with you all. You’ll love watermelon in your smoothie. It contains lots of natural water and create the lightest refreshing drink. My little girl love it too so I am sure your kids will be happy to enjoy this drink on Valentine’s day!
