Looking for a refreshing summer drink to enjoy on the patio? This Watermelon Smoothie will satisfy your thirst - and please your taste buds. It is made with chilled watermelon cubes, vanilla Greek yogurt, honey, unsweetened almond milk, and fresh lime juice. So it's creamy, sweet, and has some zing. And is ultra-hydrating. That's because watermelon is almost 92% water. Watermelon is also packed with vitamins that boost your immune system and lycopene, which is good for your heart. Besides enjoying this drink with your friends, it also makes a great post-workout drink. That's because watermelon contains citrulline, which relieves muscle soreness.

Is it OK to drink watermelon juice every day?

It is OK to drink watermelon juice every day if you drink it in moderation. However, if you drink too much of it each day, you could consume too much lycopene, resulting in diarrhea, indigestion, and bloating. 

Does watermelon reduce belly fat?

If eaten as part of a calorie-reduced diet, watermelon can reduce belly fat. In a 2019 study published in the journal Nutrients, participants who consumed watermelon lost more belly fat than those given cookies (with the exact calorie count like watermelon). They also lost more weight and reduced their BMI.

Is Blending watermelon good for you?

Yes, blended watermelon, aka watermelon juice, is good for you. It's packed with water, vitamin C, and lycopene and low in calories.
