Watermelon Smoothie

Tasty and healthy food doesn't get any easier than this. Simply add the flesh and seeds of watermelon to a blender and whizz for 30 seconds for a cool and refreshing smoothie.

Not only is watermelon smoothie super delicious, it is also mega nutritious and Very Low in Calories!

And if someone starts screaming that the carbohydrates in watermelon are fast-releasing (have a high GI) - then please note that it doesn't matter as there are So Few Carbohydrates in watermelon.

Watermelon flech is rich in vitamin A, C and B6 as well as the antioxidant lycopene and the seeds are like all seeds rich in both vitamins and minerals.

I love it!
