After School Snack: Watermelon-Mint Smoothie

It’s hot out there in New York City so this week we are focusing on foods that hydrate! Did you know that watermelon is 92% water and strawberries are 91% water? Both also contain an impressive amount of vitamin C! Our Watermelon-Mint Smoothie combines both watermelon and strawberries, simply blended with a touch of mint! Delicious, hydrating and refreshing!

Make this for yourself and your kids this summer after a long day at the pool!
