- 1/2 cup (125 mL) watermelon cubes (optional, but recommended)
- 1 to 1 1/2 (250 to 365 mL) cups baby spinach or other leafy green
- 1 cup (250 mL) coconut water or water
- 1 large sweet apple (such as Gala or Honeycrisp)
- 3 tablespoons (45 mL) avocado
- 1 to 2 tablespoons (15 to 30 mL) fresh lime juice, to taste
- 5 to 10 large mint leaves, to taste 5 large ice cubes
1 Freeze the watermelon cubes (if using) overnight or until frozen solid.
