Watermelon is full of lycopene. You’ve probably never heard of lycopene before – it’s a carotenoid phytonutrient found in red fruits and veggies like watermelon and tomatoes. Lycopene has antioxidant properties that can help prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease, as well as having anti-inflammatory properties. Also, we've used Watermelons in this recipe simply because they are delicious!

This watermelon smoothie also contains pineapple, which is high in Vitamin C, bromelain, and can help with your digestion. Mango is in there too for a good dose of, Vitamin C, B vitamins, and dietary fiber. 

Watermelon is great for rehydrating, but so is coconut water. This whole smoothie is very sweet, yummy and best of all it's good for you!
