More of a juice than a smoothie (because of the ingredient’s low fiber content), this invigorating frappe alkalizes and hydrates the body. That is why this drink is perfect for right after a strenuous workout or when it’s hot outside. In fact, I highly recommend you add this to the menu for all of your midsummer picnics and sporting events. It’s tasty, light, and refreshing.
