The summer months have arrived, which means the heat is upon us. You need to make sure that you stay hydrated to avoid dehydration. What better way to do that, aside from drinking lots of water, than to make fresh, hydrating seasonal produce items into a juice. This juice aims to do several things: hydrate, heal, and nourish.
If you are new to green juices, this is the perfect entry point. Normally people think they taste disgusting, but this tastes like it could even be a healthy sorbet! Before we give you the recipe, here’s how your body benefits from the ingredients.
Mint Promotes Digestion
Mint does wonders for your digestive system. Secondly, if you’ve never had the mint and watermelon combination, this flavor combo is going to blow your mind. While mint promotes healthy digestion, it also helps to soothe an upset stomach. So if you overdo it at some summer BBQs, drink a cup of mint tea to settle your stomach.
Cucumbers & Watermelons
Both watermelons and cucumbers are primarily made up of water. These ingredients also help to reduce bloating and general inflammation in the body. Additionally, they have a calming effect on the body. They are pretty cool, literally.
Spinach is a great source of plant-based protein and it is rich in magnesium, which helps to combat stress hormones. If you are looking for a low calorie food, spinach should be your go-to ingredient; it hardly has any calories per serving!
