Bubblicious watermelon gum in smoothie form


I mean this in the healthiest way possible, but this smoothie tasted like this gum.

I hope other people know about Bubblicious watermelon wave and I wasn’t the only one who spent my summers in the 90’s binging on this sugar loaded crap behind my mom’s back.  Hey, I saved up my hard earned (ha! riiiight!) money from refereeing kids soccer games and timing at swim meets for this stuff, so I don’t think spending it on sweet treats is the worst thing in the world.  Better than my sister’s squeeze pop addiction.  That stuff was straight up nast.  Sorry Laura.

This smoothie is green though, so it’s therefore healthy.


But really, it is healthy.  Amazing Grass sent me their new flavors and I saw watermelon and knew it was going to be a soulmate kinda connection.  Watermelon = summer.  And summer = watermelon.  And I love summer.  And watermelon.  I think there’s a math property somewhere in there.


In truth, I loved this flavor from the second I opened the packet and smelled it.  Mmmmelon.

Into the blender went:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup water (or nondairy milk if prefer)
  • 1/4 cup frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 packet Amazing Grass energy watermelon green superfood
  • 6 oz vanilla coconut yogurt (I used Trader Joe’s cultured coconut milk “yogurt”)
  • 4 cubes of ice


Blended until smooth.  [If you need more liquid, add 1 tbsp at a time]

Something tells me I will be making this lots this summer.  And I won’t have to hide it from my mom either.   🙂

    I LOVED that gum. The only downside was that it lost all of its flavor after about 5 minutes (at least it did for me), so I had to continuously chew more pieces! Mmmm… watermelon 🙂

    My mom only let me have sugarfree gum. I wanted that Bubbalicious so bad.

    Ahhh…that gum was my jam growing up. It was just always such a letdown that the flavor lasted a mere 2-3 minutes and then you had to pop another piece!

    I can’t wait to get my hands on some of the watermelon amazing grass– it sounds unbelievable! I literally eat my bodyweight in watermelon (and berries and pineapple and mango) during the summer. Sorry, not sorry. (:

    Elise! Yuck! I’m cracking up that I didn’t know about this. Is your conscience clear now? xoxo

    That was my favorite gum ever! Watermelon candy was definitely my thing back in the day. I’m definitely going to look for this next time I’m at Whole Foods!

    That looks amazing and worthy of a whole foods run

    I’m sure there are a few more things I have hidden…but no squeeze pops.
