Watermelon gazpacho

I'm not a big fan of watermelon, but I'm going to try this this summer. :o) It's a Blendtec recipe, but I think most blenders could handle these ingredients.

Watermelon Gazpacho


4 C watermelon, diced and seeded
2 oranges, peeled*
⅓ C light agave nectar**
1 C ice cubes
½ C small diced seeded, peeled cucumber
½ C small diced jicama
½ C small diced avocado
½ C small diced mango
½ C small diced hulled strawberries

Add watermelon, oranges, agave and ice cubes to WildSide Jar and secure lid. Select “Whole Juice.” Pour gazpacho base into serving dish, add diced ingredients, stir and chill 4-8 hours until ready to serve.

To prepare in the FourSide Jar, add watermelon to jar and secure lid. Blend watermelon until liquefied. Add oranges, agave and ice cubes secure lid and select “Whole Juice”.

*Before peeling orange, use a paring knife to remove some of the zest to add to your blend.
** Depending on the ripeness and sweetness of the fruit, adjust agave or sweetener accordingly especially as summer approaches.
