Summer is here. And so is the scorching heat and dehydration. The body sweats in the heat and eventually loses a lot of water. And this is exactly why we need to keep replacing the lost water with fluids to keep the body hydrated and healthy. Since summer brings an array of fruits and vegetables that everyone loves, replacing the lost sweat with juices and smoothies isn’t much of a dilemma.
Summer and smoothies go hand in hand. Smoothies are drinks made from fruits and vegetables of your choice. They are healthy, encourage the consumption of fruits and vegetables and, most importantly, they are packed with nutrients – fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals and fiber. They also help control food cravings by being a meal replacement.

Muskmelon is one of the most beloved fruits of the summer. On Wednesday, Chef Kunal Kapur swept away our midweek afternoon blues with a super easy and effective muskmelon smoothie recipe that can be easily made at home. Look:
Musk Melon, chopped – 1cup
Milk – 1 cup
Honey – 1½ tablespoons
Celery, chopped – 1 tbsp
Ginger, chopped – ¼ teaspoon
Nutmeg powder – a pinch
Black pepper powder – a pinch
Vanilla extract – a few drops
Coconut water – ¾ cup
Take a mixer/blender and add all the ingredients. Blend it all into a fine smoothie. Serve it with a slice of musk melon with the glass of smoothie.
Muskmelon is packed with health benefits. These fruits help in boosting the digestive system and overall immunity of the body. They also help promote hair growth and leave skin glowing and youthful. Melons also help regulate blood pressure and support eye health by improving vision. Eating a melon daily also helps fight stress.
