What Are The Benefits Of a Watermelon Smoothie?

Watermelon Smoothie for Weight Loss

Watermelon is a low-calorie fruit that is extremely good for our urinary tract and hydrating our bodies.

Here’s a more in-depth breakdown of all the benefits of drinking a watermelon smoothie:

  • Rich in Nutrients: Watermelon contains vitamins A and C, and antioxidants like lycopene, which are beneficial for skin and eye health.
  • Dietary Fiber For a Healthy Digestion: Watermelon along with other ingredients used alongside watermelon in this smoothie, provides a good amount of fiber, which aids digestion and helps relieve constipation.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: The antioxidants, such as lycopene and vitamin C, have anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Good For Weight Loss: As a low-calorie, fat-free food, this watermelon smoothie can be a satisfying treat that fits into a weight-loss diet.
  • Natural Sweetness: Watermelon’s natural sweetness can reduce the need for added sugars, making the smoothie a healthier option.
  • May Relief Symptoms Of UTIs: Watermelon is very hydrating and watery, and it’s rich in vitamins, which may aid the symptoms of UTis.

If you enjoy this smoothie, you should also definitely try my ginger and watermelon smoothie, as well as green watermelon smoothie recipe!

Smoothie Variations

While I recommend that you stick to my recipe, there are some ingredient swaps and small changes you could make to the recipe should you want to.

Below I will leave some options I have tested:

  1. No Coconut Milk: Coconut milk, even low fat is quite high in calories. But in this case, I find it necessary, since its fat content promotes satiety. But, you can swap it for a lower-calorie option, such as almond or oat milk.
  2. Swap The Chia Seeds: A few people mentioned to me on my YouTube channel that they cannot get a hand on chia seeds. If that’s the case, you can use oats or peanut butter instead.
  3. If You Are Vegan: Swap the Greek yogurt for a vegan alternative (I love coconut yogurt) or use 1/2 avocado.

Best Time To Drink This Smoothie For Weight Loss

I have personally only ever consumed this smoothie for breakfast as a meal replacement. 

I did this for 7 days, and I lost 2 pounds in a week!

But, I also combined the smoothie with exercising and an overall decreased number of calories per day.
