Watermelon Smoothie

4 cups watermelon (chopped and seeded)

1/4 cup pineapple juice (can substitute with other juices or just ice)

Place ingredients in blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour into tall glass.


Fruit Smoothie

1 cup frozen Blueberries
1 cup filtered water
1 teaspoon 100% organic, raw Peruvian maca powder
2 tablespoons ground flax-seed

Blend all the ingredients together in a blender. If it’s too thick add some more filtered water until you get it the way you like it. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

NOTE: You can replace the blueberries with other fruit like cherries, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, pears, melon, pineapple or bananas…or you can add more than one fruit to your smoothie. The choices are endless.
