So I’m a sucker for a watermelon on sale. We love them! I always know we can make one disappear in no time. Then, days pass and I have one very ripe half of a watermelon. Oops.
This refreshing smoothie is a great way to work some mommy magic and make a melon vanish.
2-3 cups ripe watermelon
1/2c frozen unsweetened peaches
1/2c frozen unsweetened strawberries
1-2T ground flax
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1T local honey
Why all the extra stuff you ask?
The 2T serving of flaxseed packs Omega-3 fatty acids, 4g fiber, 3g protein, iron, and trace amounts of B vitamins. Adding Omega-3 fats to your diet can help lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease. Plus, the one serving is all you need to meet your recommended daily dose of Omega-3. Local honey is said to improve allergies, and cinnamon is credited with reducing LDL cholesterol levels and helping the body regulate blood sugar levels.
