Watermelon Cucumber Cooler

On these hot summer days refresh with  an energizing smoothie using these seasonal ingredients to stay cool.

  • Watermelon is a great remedy for avoiding dehydration, it cools and cleanses the body.

  • Cucumber is incredibly hydrating and charged with enzymes, B vitamins, vitamin C, nutrients, and electrolytes to build skin radiance from within. It's also full of beautifying silica, as well as caffeic acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties.

  • Mint promotes efficient digestion and is cooling!

Kitchen Tip: 

You can also make a must have summer treat, paletas (ice pops) too. Take all ingredients and toss them in the blender. Whirl them around and then freeze your pops. You can get molds or use and ice tray, small cups or even muffin tins instead. To get the sticks to stand up straight, let the pops become slushy in the freezer first, then use a piece of foil fitted over the top to hold them in place. The sticks will poke out from the foil. To unmold the pops, run the mold under warm water for a few seconds. They should slide right out of the molds. Store pops in freezer bags or in a sealable freezer-safe container.
