Coconut water is a great way to rehydrate. Coconut water naturally contains more potassium than most sports drink so it helps your body more efficiently hydrate than drinking water alone. This is great for hard workers and pregnant women alike - unfortunately I don't like the way plain coconut water tastes
Lucky for me, if you add it to some sweet summer fruit and take it through a whirl in your blender, you have a delightful drink that will keep you hydrated and give you an extra nutrition boost, too! This smoothie is light and sweet and tastes like summer in a glass.
- 1 cup fresh watermelon chunks
- Juice of one lime
- 3/4 cup coconut water
- 1 cup frozen strawberries*

Serve with a sprig of fresh mint and sip through a straw while relaxing on your back porch!
