This refreshing fruit is soaked with nutrients. Each juicy bite has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, plus lots of antioxidants and amino acids. The lycopene in watermelon makes it an anti-inflammatory fruit and the citrulline and arginine are good for your heart.
Watermelon has some very healing properties, and can be “used to treat thirst, urinary difficulty, edema, canker sores, depression, and kidney and urinary tract inflammations such as nephritis and urethritis,” according to Paul Pitchford’s Healing with Whole Foods.
First, you’ll freeze yourself some watermelon cubes (aren’t they so pretty?!)
Watermelon Smoothie Delight
YUMMMMMM!!! What a sun-shiney, refreshing, summertime treat!
- ½ medium-sized seedless watermelon, cubed and frozen
- ¼ teaspoon liquid stevia (optional)
- 1 cup water, or to cover
- Blend on high speed.
- If you keep the water and blend a bit longer, you’ll get a icy, frothy smoothie, or…
- Drain out excess water to get more of a slushie.
- I’m sure adding a bit more stevia and a splash of vodka wouldn’t kill anyone either 😉 Enjoy!
Thanks for your interest in compassion and yummy food!
