- Hey, guys, if you're like me and wake up with a sweet tooth right away, I have the perfect Sour Patch watermelon smoothie that'll cure those taste buds and also give you energy for your morning. So to get started on this Sour Patch watermelon smoothie, I'm gonna make the citric acid mixture. So I'm mixing together sugar, lemon juice, and some salt, and it definitely mimics the Sour Patch watermelon sugar coating that's nice and sour. All right, so I'm gonna set this aside. And now I'm gonna get started on the pink layer for the Sour Patch smoothie. So I have fresh watermelon, and now I'm gonna add in some frozen pineapple chunks and a lot of lemon juice. And I love using lemon juice in this recipe 'cause it makes the smoothie nice and sour. Okay, so now I'm gonna blend all of my smoothie ingredients together. All right, so this looks nice and smooth. And now I'm gonna grab my smoothie glasses, and I'm gonna coat each class with the citric acid sugar mixture. And I'm gonna put about a little over a tablespoon in each glass. So now I'm gonna take my pink layer, and then I'm gonna add it to each of these glasses. And I'm gonna do about 3/4 of the cup, and then the top layer will be the green layer that we'll do in a minute. Smells so good. So I think I went a little overboard adding the pink layers to these three glasses, so I'm just gonna set aside this one. Maybe a person running late to your breakfast party will get this one. So now I'm gonna get started on the green layer of this smoothie. So I'm gonna take this spinach. Here's my lemon juice. I'm gonna blend together the spinach, lemon juice, and pineapple chunks. So I'm gonna add the watermelon chunks now. So I'm just gonna mix these together, try to push the watermelon and pineapple down so you get closer to the blade. Okay, so my green smoothie layer is done. And you could tell when it's done when the spinach leaves are fully incorporated into the smoothie and it's a perfect green color. So now I'm gonna top off my pink smoothie layers, and I'm gonna do just a little bit on the tops to really get that Sour Patch watermelon color. I'm gonna fill up these guys in a second, but I just really wanna try the smoothie. This is kinda my breakfast pick-me-up right now. Oh my God, I love this smoothie so much. It totally reminds me of just going to the movie theater, having a bunch of Sour Patch watermelon candies, but this will give me energy thanks to the spinach and watermelon and pineapple. So, you should make this at home. Cheers.
