During those hot summer days, a frosty drink made from sweet and juicy watermelon, tart lime, refreshing mint, and tangy yogurt is the perfect treat.
Watermelon is a great source of lycopene, which may help protect against wrinkle-causing sun damage. And yogurt is one of my top ten beauty foods for its high content of calcium, which may help keep teeth strong and aid in nail growth.
- 2 cups frozen watermelon
- Juice of one lime (around 2 tablespoons)
- ¼ cup fresh mint leaves
- ½ cup nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
In a blender, blend all ingredients and blend until smooth. Add water one tablespoon at a time if needed to create a smooth consistency.
