Purple Watermelon Smoothie

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Due to the high water content of watermelon you don’t need to add water or any other fluids to the blender if you follow this recipe. This smoothie certainly is loaded with a high amount of phytonutrients and antioxidants lycopene, anthocyanin’s, carotenoids, lutein and many more! Did you know that a new study  has demonstrated that a naturally occurring amino acid (l-Citrulline) that is in watermelon can help reduce muscle soreness? So next time you’re feeling a little achy perhaps try a watermelon based smoothie or juice post-workout.
