Hi hi and hello!
Current watching Doctor Strange with the ‘rents as I write this post. Usually not a big Marvel movie fan, but I gotta say, this one is pretty damn interesting.
Speaking of superhero-ish movies, I’m totally counting the days until DeadPool 2 and Suicide Squad 2 come out. Ryan Reynold’s and Jared Leto are just too damn sexy.
Anyway the topic of this post is not movies. And I’ll never get this post finished if I start daydreaming about those two.
So we’re moving on to the real topic of this post.
My new drink of choice: Watermelon smoothies. Inspired by Smoothie King actually.
I went there the other week and was craving something different than my usual mango-peach combo and stumbled across their new line of hydration smoothies and this one caught my eye.
Naturally- it was too good not to share, but I’ve tweaked it just a bit for the blog.
And once I finish this post- you’ll be running out to grab the ingreds so you can make it yourself too. It’s super hydrating, full of goodness, and is the perfect breakfast sip if you’re on the go or need an afternoon pick-me-up.
+ Watermelon is 92% water & soaked with nutrients. Each bite has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene (super important for our cardiovascular and bone health), antioxidants and amino acids.
+ Dragonfruit is insanely pretty (almost too pretty to eat) and have a huge number of phytonutrients. It’s one of the best superfoods because they are rich in antioxidants, they contain vitamin C (equivalent to 10 percent of the daily value), polyunsaturated (good) fatty acids, and several B vitamins for carbohydrate metabolism, as well as carotene and protein. (More benefits and uses of Dragonfruit here)
+ Coconut Water is packed with antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C and minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese and zinc. The micronutrients in coconut water help boost the immune system. Plus, the plant hormones called cytokinins in this health drink exhibit anti-aging, antithrombotic and anticancer effects.
Is your mouth watering yet?
This is literally the perfect drink to keep those Summer vibes going.
Alright- I’m off to finish the movie and head to bed.
