ORbike Watermelon Recovery Smoothie

RefreshingRecovery

Watermelon deserves more praise. Not only is this juicy fruit the official symbol of summertime BBQs and sunny skies, it’s also high in vitamin C, potassium and the cancer-busting lycopene.

We like to blend into a refreshing recovery drink, like the ORbike Watermelon Recovery Smoothie.

This recipe is best made with frozen watermelon. Plan ahead: next time you buy a watermelon, cube up half of it and put it in the freezer. Freeze the watermelon on a baking pan first then transfer to a sealed container to avoid the cubes sticking together.

1 cup high-protein plain Greek yogurt (we recommend Chobani 0% fat)
1/4 cup coconut water (with an extra 1/2 cup reserved)
1 cup watermelon, cubed and frozen
1/2 cup cherries, pitted and not frozen

Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Add extra coconut water as needed until desired consistency is achieved.

Enjoy in a chilled pint glass with a fat straw while you kick back on the porch.
