COOL ME DOWN WATERMELON SMOOTHIE



Summer days are rolling in here in Colorado, and the best way to cool off our bodies is by providing them with cooling fruits and vegetables. I love a juicy and sweet watermelon during summer days! And in this recipe we combine it with basil, cucumber and lemon, providing you with ingredients rich in water, fiber, Vitamins B & C, anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory and soaked with nutrients.

I’ve always encourage my friends and clients to substitute ingredients, to experiment, as they may have ingredients at home that they would like to utilize before they go bad, or just want to try something new. In this case you could try fresh mint instead of basil…blend, taste, add more, serve and Salud!

Ingredients (makes 2-4 servings)

  • 1/2 large cucumber (peeled)

  • 1/4 lemon (peeled)

  • 2 cups watermelon

  • 3-5 medium basil leaves or mint leaves (or until you reach the desired taste)

  • 1 cup ice

  • 1 cup water

  • add more water or ice if needed

Instructions

  • wash all the ingredients and cut them into small pieces

  • blend until smooth

  • taste and serve
