With the season to be jolly around the corner comes the temptation to indulge in yummy foods, festive drinks and hours in the summer sun. Stay refreshed with these seasonal fruit smoothie recipes that will keep you fueled up and most importantly, detoxed.
It is important to stay hydrated in the summer sun. The current water restrictions may lead to hydration guilt so we suggest swapping the H20 for a delicious Rosemary Melonade. This summery smoothie contains watermelon which offers hydration and is rich in vitamin C and anti-inflammatory lycopene, to keep you feeling great! Throw in some rosemary which has several impressive health benefits that include the ability to improve mood, relieve pain, stimulate circulation and detoxify the body, plus, it adds an abundance of flavour. If you’re feeling brave, add a jalapeño for an extra kick.
