This refreshing beverage is a great way to replenish your body after a hard workout. Pair with a small amount of protein for a perfect post-workout snack.
This yummy drink includes electrolytes from the coconut water and a delicious taste from the watermelon and hint of lime. I’ve also thrown in some fiber from the chia seeds.
It also provides anti-inflammatory benefits. Watermelon is shown to reduce inflammatory markers, which can reduce the risk of arthritis.
No, this isn’t a low carb drink (I’m usually a low-carb gal). But on a hot day or after strenuous exercise, your muscles may need a jump start on recovery. Enjoy!
