Making an awesome Smoothie

I like smoothies, I don't have them often but I plan to change that, it's an awsome way to pack in nutrients with little to no hassle. Just a one stop meal. Here is an awesome recipe that I found on

Peachy Watermelon Smoothie


I love watermelon and the fact that it is only in season for such a short time means I try to eat it as often as I can during the few summer months when it is at its most refreshing and sweet. For some reason I don’t often use it my smoothie recipes even though watermelon is a incredibly healthy food for you. This delicious food is packed with some of the most powerful antioxidants in nature, including Vitamin C,  Vitamin A and Vitamin B7. These reduce the chance of colon cancer, relieve some symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, according to The World’s Healthiest Foods. So here is a summer smoothie recipe featuring watermelon, strawberries and peach flavor.
Peachy Watermelon Smoothie Ingredients:
  • 2-3 cups watermelon (seeded)
  • 1 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup strawberries (frozen)
  • 1/2 cup peach juice (or try 1 peach if you don’t have juice)
You know the drill, add to your blender and blend until smooth. Makes 2 nice size glasses.
