Watermelon is a totally good-for-you food: the sweet, juicy pink melon is high in cancer-fighting lycopene and vitamins, but has zero fat or cholesterol.
This refreshing smoothie could earn a well-deserved place in your regular diet, it’s so luscious and it’s good for you, too. Watermelon Mint Smoothie makes a great breakfast, or a super pick-me-up snack anytime. Check out this easy recipe:

One tablespoon honey
One tablespoon fresh mint leaves, or to taste
1 cup lemon yogurt
Puree watermelon, honey and mint in a blender or food processor quickly. Do not over blend. Pulse in the yogurt and cinnamon just until smooth.
