Watermelon, pineapple and banana make a nutritious trio and a deliciously sweet smoothie recipe. It's also a great way to use up watermelon in the summer months.
Watermelon is most commonly known as a hydrating fruit and a good source of Vitamin A and Vitamin B6. Combining watermelon with bananas and pineapple adds in a variety of important vitamins, as well as the added benefits of essential electrolytes and minerals.
