This month’s recipe has an icy, sweetness from frozen fruit—and good-for-you, thirst-quenching ingredients—that make it a healthy person’s Slurpee!

Juicy watermelon is the ultimate summer beauty food, since it carries antioxidants like lycopene, which helps skin cope with too much sun exposure.

Watermelon also hydrates with electrolytes, thereby keeping us dewy and glowing.

Fresh mint has cooling properties while aiding digestion. Lime has more vitamin C than an orange. And a head of romaine surprisingly offers 7.7 grams of protein, making it, and chia seeds (with protein, fiber, and omegas), a great addition to a summer fruit smoothie.

Frozen strawberries add natural sweetness, have anti-inflammatory benefits, and give the smoothie its frosty texture. Make a pitcher and keep it (kiddie) poolside. —Photo and text by Jennifer Kass
