Hydrating Coconut-Melon Smoothie

Snap Fitness

We’ve created this vitamin-packed and refreshing smoothie to hydrate you after an intense workout. With only a few ingredients, you’ll be sipping this smoothie down in no time!

 

Melons like cantaloupe and watermelon are naturally low in calories, help to reduce inflammation, and lower blood pressure. Packed with essential vitamins and minerals, melons play an important role for overall health.

 

The coconut water in this smoothie provides electrolytes for hydration and recovery. Refreshing and tasty, coconut water is packed with more potassium than four bananas.

 

Chia seeds pack a serious punch without adding flavor. They provide you with fiber, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and calcium. Chia seeds also contain protein, making it a perfect addition to a smoothie for more energy and muscle recovery.

 

BONUS: You can freeze the extra smoothie in popsicle molds for a breakfast pop!
