A summer beverage that you can make in a snap. Watermelon smoothie is refreshing and delicious.

Watermelon is  a good source of vitamin C and beta-carotene (which your body synthesizes into vitamin A). Watermelons with red flesh have more lycopene than tomatoes which is a nutrient believed to protect against prostate cancer.

Who could resist such a pretty colorful smoothie! Watermelon, apple, banana, Greek Yogurt and your favorite sweetener in one glass.

    I would not use agave. Not a healthy choice. Local honey is better.

    the FB ad said this Was good for a headache. is that correct? why? thanks!

    • Thanks for stopping by
      When a headache strikes you in summers because of dehydration, beat the summer heat with watermelon. Most of the nutritionists agree to the fact that dehydration is the major cause of headaches. The high water content present in watermelons helps to resolve this problem and soothes headache. It also contains magnesium which is beneficial for treating headaches

    Is there a substitute for the yogurt? Not a fan:(
