Watermelon is one of the quintessential flavors of summer. Hydrating, juicy, and sweet, they make a great addition to many recipes including smoothies. Additionally, watermelon is full of vitamin A, B6, C, and lycopene. Lycopene is responsible for the red colors of fruits and veggies and is a powerful antioxidant that is thought to help prevent cancer. Throw in some pineapple, strawberries, and banana and you’ve gotten yourself a tropical summer party! These fruits boost the natural sweetness and provide additional health benefits. Pineapple for one has been linked to asthma prevention, lowered blood pressure, cancer prevention, promote regularity and healthy digestion, and heart health just to name a few!
Your final ingredient: GoLive Flavorless Pre/Probiotic blend! According to the American Psychological Association, gut bacteria manufacture about 95% of the body’s supply of serotonin which influences both mood and GI activity. Get your mouth watering and summer feel-good vibes flowing with this must-try smoothie today!
