With summer in full swing we are all looking for cool, light and refreshing drinks. This low calorie, sparkling and flavorful fruit smoothie from Lindsay Cotter is just the ticket! A tall drink to enjoy on the terrace or by the pool, it ticks all the boxes. And is healthy to boot. (You’ll find the recipe at the end.)

Lindsay Cotter is a Sport Dietician specializing in Sport Nutrition and Gluten Free diets; she writes at CotterCrunch. Lindsay confesses to not liking watermelon. She loves the flavor, yes, but not the fruit itself …

But when you freeze watermelon, then make it the “ice” of a smoothie, it’s pretty fantastic. In fact, it acts a natural sweetener and packs this frozen fruit smoothie with even more hydration! Watermelon is 92% water. That’s crazy awesome! And .. um, did I mention it’s 100F out? We need all the hydration we can get. I sweat going to the car or taking out the trash. Not lying.
