When ever I think of my favourite fruits watermelons always come to my mind, maybe it's because it's so juicy or maybe I am just in love with the sweetness. Well whatever the reason, if you are ever lucky enough to sneak upon me on a early Saturday morning you might just get to witnesses me stuffing my face with an entire melon (and some bananas).

Benefits of watermelons

Watermelons, despite being 92% water, is very nutrient dense. One of the most noticeably benefits of  eating this fruit is an improvement in blood circulation. Wow, who would have thought that just by eating water melons you could have better cardiovascular and sexual health (guys, take notes:more melons=no Viagra).

On top of all that this oval-shaped delight has remarkable anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Your risk of developing asthma, constipation and cancer goes right down hill from regular intake of watermelons (take that cancer). Oh, again for the guys; eat more melons and your prostate will love you for it.

I remember when I used to complain about muscle pains after some vigorous exercise but thanks to my little green and red friend I don't feel so much pains after my work out now and my skin looks and feels so cool.

Watermelon smoothie recipe

Ingredients

The only thing you need is some ice cold (fresh) water melon. You can use as much as you like.

If your melon isn't already cold, you can pop in a few ice cubes.

Method

  • Cut the melon into halves, quarters or whatever fraction you like.
  • We'll need to scoop out the fruity part of the melon- you know the red stuff- be sure to scoop as much as possible down to the white, this is where you will find most of that good stuff called nutrients.
  • Add this to your blender and blend at high speed while humming your favourite song- or maybe "One Love" by Bob Marley.
  • When all the chunks of fruit is completely blended you are good to go.
  • You might want to use a strainer to filter out the seeds now but personally I love the gritty texture they give. Plus the seeds are actually good for you and is a good source of protein. But you can save yourself the trouble and remove the seeds before you start blending.

So there you have it.This watermelon smoothie recipe is really enjoyable especially after a tiring game of soccer, hmm so refreshing, please do enjoy.

P.s You're sure to get tonnes of fibre form this smoothie.
