Watermelon and Mint Mojito
Watermelon and mint are a superhealing combo, and when blended together in a smoothie, they taste indulgent. Watermelon contains lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant that can protect against degenerative diseases and help cells function better. Mint contains menthol, which is a natural decongestant that helps break up phlegm and mucus. Blend up this treat when you are feeling under the weather or need to clear your sinuses. According to Alisa Vitti, integrative nutritionist and author of WomanCode: Perfect Your Cycle, Amplify Your Fertility “watermelon gives the body a rich supply of glutathione, which is important for egg quality.”
