If you have been enjoying this summer heat as much as I have been, you know how important it is to stay hydrated.
This cooling blend of mint, lime, coconut water and watermelon is sure to quench your thirst and replace those electrolytes we lose from sweating.
The antioxidants in the watermelon also have the added benefit of supporting a healthier skin response to sun exposure.
Minty Watermelon Summer Smoothie:
4 cups watermelon
1 cup coconut water (fresh or unpasteurized (frozen) is best)
3 tbsp fresh mint
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp Lily of the Desert Organic Preservative-Free Aloe Vera Juice or 2 tbsp fresh aloe vera gel (optional)
