Make your own healthy lemon-lime soda smoothie! Lemon and lime juice are acidic when they go in but actually have an alkalizing effect on the body’s pH after digestion. Melons are full of juice with the right balance of electrolytes and nutrients to hydrate your cells perfectly. Watermelon is also one of the few fruits containing lycopene, a super antioxidant. This smoothie is refreshing in the summer or just after a strenuous workout and is high in vitamins A and C. At only 77 calories per serving, this smoothie recipe is the ideal replacement for lemon-lime soda, which, in a 12 oz serving, provides no nutritional value but contains 100 calories.

2 cups watermelon
1 cup honey dew melon
¼ cup lemon juice
2 tbsp lime juice
1 cup ice cubes
Optional: Substitute ½ cup ice cubes with ½ cup sparkling water for a fizzy smoothie
Instructions: 
  1. Add all ingredients to the blender in the order of items listed.
