When I think of summer I think of watermelon. Eating it as a child and spitting out the black seeds with the juice dripping down my arms. Now I enjoy it with my family, just without the seeds. In an effort to increase my fluids while nursing, and eat something healthy in the two minutes I have to make lunch, I am making lots of smoothies as the temperature heats up. My latest creation combines two favorite fruits, watermelon and mango. Plus I throw in a little chia seeds, a great super food that ups the protein level in this drink.
