I have been feeling dehydrated lately, so on a break from work I stopped by home really quick and made this delicious fruit smoothie packed with electrolytes. All four ingredients in this smoothie contain potassium + the coconut water is filled with sodium, magnesium & phosphorus too.
Blood oranges & cucumbers are both in season and oh-so-delicious. The blood oranges can be a bit tart, so I added the cucumber to cut down on the tartness in the juice. I also added a little fresh ginger to give it an extra zing (plus ginger is a wonderful anti-inflammatory). All three ingredients are very cleansing for your body.
I used to love slushies but the ones I loved came from a machine and had no actual fruit in them. This slushie beverage is packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber. And unlike the machine-made slushies, this one only has 1 tsp of cane sugar per serving, the rest of the sweetness is from the fruit.
