TEXT SIZE: A A A

Here is Fast Friday Fitness - quick vitamin and fiber-rich sweet drink helpful before and after exercise:

  1. Put fresh watermelon slices in a blender, seeds and all.
  2. Blend to a sweet smooth drink.
  3. Depending on your blender, you may need to push the slices down to the blades with a wooden spoon. If you don't have a blender, get arm exercise mashing the slices to sweet juice in a bowl.


The seeds provide good nutrients. Watermelon has high levels of several vitamins including lycopene. Replaces muscle glycogen, blood electrolytes, and other helpful nutrients. No chemicals or refined sweeteners.
