Recipe: Coconut and Watermelon, Absolutely!

If you are looking for the perfect way to rehydrate on a hot day or after intense exercise try this simple watermelon and coconut water blend.

Making a smoothie or fruit blend does not have to be complicated or require a large number of ingredients.  I especially understand this for those who are busy and on-the-go. 

Individually, both ingredients rehydrate the body well but as a combo they make for a powerful re-hydrating treat of electrolytes and simple sugars.

We were wowed when we tasted this blend created by Madelynn, one of our Online Nutritionists in our Customer Relations team. The watermelon and coconut complemented each other wonderfully, resulting in a refreshing delight, a bit like a cool breeze on a long hot summer’s day…colorful, pretty and perfect.

Coconut & Watermelon + Zupafood for Skin.

Coconut Water:

Skin hydration is very important. Dehydration leaves the skin lifeless. Coconut water hydrates dull and dry skin, bringing smoothness to the face. Coconut water is full of naturally occurring potassium, a nutrient that many Americans are deficient in.

Watermelon:

Rich in electrolytes and water content, watermelons are nature’s gift to beat thirst!  Watermelons are very low in calories and fats yet very rich source of numerous health promoting phyto-nutrients and anti-oxidants that are essential for optimum health.  Watermelon is an excellent source of the carotenoid lycopene, Studies suggest that lycopene may offer some protection to skin from harmful UV rays.
