Summer Watermelon Icee!

Happy Monday health & wellness lovers! ♥

I have a new summer drink obsession... watermelon icees! You've got to try this!

It tastes as sweet as a convenience store 'icee', but it's made entirely with watermelon! And it's so healthy, clean, refreshing, & innocent!

I will definitely be enjoying this drink all summer... it cools you off immediately!

How to Make:

2 Ingredients!
  • 2 cups watermelon
  • 1 cup ice
  1. Blend the watermelon into juice.
  2. Add ice cubes. (a few at a time)

    *Benefits of Watermelon*
    -it's a dieurtic (say goodbye to bloat!)
    -high in vitamins C, A, B6, B1
    -contains potassium, magnesium, & fiber
    -has an alkalizing effect on the body
