|blueberry watermelon cooler|
For me, eating a slice of watermelon after a summer workout is incredibly refreshing and revitalizing. Whether it's running, biking, walking, gardening, wind surfing, rock climbing, or yoga, watermelon feels like the perfect amount of sweetness and juiciness to revive your body.
My favorite variety are the small seedless watermelons that have a deep rich, red interior. These small personal watermelons are excellent in blended drinks because the tiny seeds just disappear in the mix, and you don't have to spend time picking them out beforehand. Here I paired watermelon with a handful of frozen blueberries which are packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, dietary fiber, and manganese. Think of blueberries as nature's medicine on steroids :)
