Summer is the peak season of watermelon and cucumbers. Watermelon is an amazing source of lycopene. It even has more lycopene than raw tomatoes, with about 6,500 micrograms in less than half a cup. Cucumbers are also extremely healthy, being one of the most hydrating foods in the world. There is also a touch of ginger in this smoothie which happens to be one of the healthiest spices as well. Try this smoothie out if you want to feel good and refreshed in the summer heat.
