SUMMER LOVE WATERMELON PRE-WORKOUT SMOOTHIE RECIPE

Fuel your fitness with this hydrating breakfast or pre-workout smoothie recipe.

Our recipe testers tried this all different ways and it ALWAYS turned out delicious!

You can try a tasty vegan version by substituting the yogurt listed in the recipe with a non-dairy yogurt or tofu (if using tofu, you may want to add a little natural sweetener!).

You can also try the optional ingredients, easily masking the flavor of blue green algae (we use the best: E3Live) or try the new Blendfresh 12 Red Fruits & Vegetables for a boost of phytonutrients and a flavor kids LOVE!

You can use a high-powered Vitamix or Blendtec blender to pulverize protein rich watermelon seeds, but easily blend this smoothie recipe with a “regular blender” too! 🙂

HEALTH BENEFITS AND FUN FACTS ABOUT WATERMELON

Some foods are fun to eat, and watermelon is definitely one of them.

The triangular wedge of bright red, white and green sweet juiciness reminds us not to take life too seriously and screams SUMMER!

As if that weren’t enough, watermelon is packed full of nutrients, it’s great for hydration and it’s low-fat.

While many of us think of watermelon as a go-to snack, you might consider making it a feature player in your diet after you tally up the many nutritional benefits it has to offer.

Watermelons are an excellent source of several vitamins: vitamin A, which is antioxidant that helps maintain eye health; vitamin C, which helps strengthen immunity, heal wounds, prevent cell damage, promote healthy teeth and gums; and vitamin B6, which helps brain function and is a key player in converting protein to energy.
