Watermelon Smoothie

Summer is almost here and so is watermelon! Funny thing is that growing up watermelon was not my favorite fruitĀ until I found this recipe by Sam Melbourne on Instagram. The reason why I love it so much is because I love juicing or making smoothies and thought it was a great recipe to integrate with my other recipes. It’s so easy, super refreshing, and you’re only going to need 4 items which include:

  • 800g-1kg of watermelon (if you buy the watermelon pre-cut it will show you the exact quantity in grams)
  • 1 cup of frozen strawberries to make it cool ( I let mine freeze for 1 hour, but you can freeze it longer)
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 1 handful of mint

Here are the directions:

  • Blend everything in your high-speed blender.

Enjoy this wonderful smoothie before or after a workout, or even as an afternoon refresher. I also found that adding this wonderful fruit into my diet was full of benefits!

Here are a few benefits from watermelon:

  • aides in digestion, which it helps you with regularity
  • helps to prevent men from getting prostate cancer since is rich in Lycopene
  • made of 92% water, say goodbye to dehydration
  • reduces muscle soreness, so it is great if you enjoy your workouts at the gym
  • high in vitamin A which will provide you with beautiful looking skin

Enjoy your Spring and Summer with this drink! I’ll sure will!

Until next time!
