I can’t describe you how beautiful the morning is starting with a watermelon smoothie. Because of that, in this article, I want to point out my 15 favorite watermelon smoothie recipes placed at the bottom of this page.
However, before I grant you that pleasure, see the benefits of a single glass of watermelon smoothie during the day.
Health Benefits of Watermelon
Each healthy diet contains an adequate ratio of fruits and vegetables. They all have a certain nutrient value offering a wide specter of benefits.
The benefits of watermelon are the following:
Red – There is a reason why watermelon has red color. Lycopene is an ingredient in watermelon, part of the group of very powerful antioxidants. Lycopene is useful in the fight against heart attacks and many other heart diseases.
Water – Where does this fruit’s name originate from? Of course, you know. This very delicious fruit contains 90% of water. It is great if you want to stop body dehydration, especially because of the fact that this fruit’s water has a high concentration of electrolytes.
Vitamin C – The increasing and preserving of a healthy immune system isn’t possible without Vitamin C. Watermelon contains a large quantity of this vitamin. It is the reason for the refreshing properties of watermelon. One glass of watermelon smoothie gives you more than 20% of the daily need for this vitamin.
Energy – Except you feel fresher, you are also full of energy. Vitamin B (B1, B6) gives you that great strength. These vitamins are very useful in the fight against hypertension.
Inflammation – Choline is a very important nutrient ingredient that helps in relaxing the body’s muscles and is good for your memory and focus. It regulates the absorption of fats and lowers chronicle inflammations. On the other hand, amino acid L-citrulline lowers the muscle pain caused by hard workouts. It also lowers the recovery time between workouts.
Skin and Hair – Vitamin A is necessary for the growth of each tissue in the organism, including the skin and hair. Of course that the concentration of Vitamin C contributes to the creating and preserving of collagen necessary for slender, tight, and shiny skin.
As I already mentioned the benefits of drinking watermelon smoothies, it is time to keep my promise and tell you my favorite watermelon smoothie recipes. I have to mention that the same is in the Vegan category.
