So many interesting facts on the health benefits of Watermelon which consists mostly of water yet provides Vitamin A, B6, C antioxidants and amino acids which contain anti-inflammortary properties and did you know it was also classed as a Vegetable? Now I have 3 Chefs in the house and they all have learned that anything with seeds is a fruit!! So who or what determines whether something is a fruit or a vegetable? And do you care? I did a search on google (is Mr.Google correct?) and it says that pumpkin, cucumber and squash is a fruit also? Interesting isn’t it? What’s your opinion?

I like watermelon no matter what, do you?

Ingredients:
Thumb size piece ginger
1/2 lemon (peel removed)
1 apple
8 frozen strawberries
1 slice watermelon
2 stalks fresh mint leaves
Handful spinach
4 beetroot leaves
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp turmeric
30g vanilla protein powder
2 cups coconut water

 Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth!

 

*Tip: To ensure that you get a smooth textured smoothie, it is recommended to blend your greens (i.e. spinach, beetroot leaves &) with the liquid first, then add the remaining ingredients.

 

Be Well
