Watermelon Ginger Cucumber Smoothie

This is a delicious, healthy and refreshing smoothy that you can whip up easily in your blender or vitamix.

Isn’t the color gorgeous? Obviously, I need to bone up on my picture taking skills but you get the idea. I was kind of in a rush because I just wanted to drink it right away!

Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients:

2 Cups Watermelon
1/2 Cucumber
1 teaspoon grated ginger
5 ice cubes (you can add more if you want it thicker)

Preparation:

Just add all the ingredients to your blender and blend it up.

Health Benefits:

Watermelon has tons of vitamins and is a powerful antioxidant and inflammatory food. It’s loaded with lycopene which has been studied for its cancer prevention properties.

Cucumbers are also loaded with vitamins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Ginger is one of the anti-aging herbs featured in my book (see the sidebar) and is well known for it’s stomach soothing properties, ability to aid digestion, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties. It can also help your skin retain elasticity and is a warming herb that can help boost metabolism.
