Homemade slushies are so refreshing, hydrating and sweetened with honey (no refined sugars here). The perfect cooling summertime drink. Watermelons and cucumbers are in season right now, so take advantage while you can.
Watermelons and cucumbers are both part of the Cucurbitaceae plant family. Both are known for being very hydrating due to their high water content. They’re also known for being very cleansing for the whole body.
For an extra bonus, watermelon is full of antioxidants and is high in vitamin A (beta-carotene) and vitamin C and cucumbers are high in vitamin C and antioxidants.
