Quick, make a mental list of ingredients that remind you of summer.

Watermelon? Cucumber? Fresh mint? Juicy strawberries?

They’re all represented in this smoothie, which is just as refreshing as it is delicious.

An added benefit: creamy kefir provides probiotics that are great for your gut health, AKA it’s a good poolside beverage to ward off bloating in your bathing suit.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

First, it tastes like summer. Second, watermelon contains more potassium than bananas (hello, electrolytes!) and plenty of cancer-fighting lycopene, while cucumber is ultra-hydrating. Strawberries provide a trifecta of powerful inflammation-fighting antioxidants, including vitamin C.
