Tropical Watermelon Smoothie Recipe

Fresh tasting, sweet flavor with the slight sharpness of lime. The mango adds a creaminess that counteracts the high water content of the watermelon.

It’s not important to measure out the exact ingredients you can always add the quantity you think you’ll like, but I think this combination is a perfect balance.

How this smoothie aids in weight loss:

Watermelon is the perfect fruit for weight loss because it is low calories, contains beneficial nutrients such as vitamin C and lycopene, and a high water content which is good for replacing electrolytes and providing energy for workouts.

Mango is high in vitamin C and contains lots of fiber.

Pineapple Juice also has a high water content, is low in calories and assists with digestion.
