Watermelon Strawberry Margarita

Pin It!

The nutrients and health benefits in this sugar free, dairy free raw version of a virgin margarita isn't only very tasty & healthy but offers health benefits. 

The tiny strawberry is packed with vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, and more.

Given their unique combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients, it's not surprising to see strong research support for strawberry health benefits in three major areas: (1) cardiovascular support and prevention of cardiovascular diseases (2) improved regulation of blood sugar, with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, and (3) prevention of certain cancer types including breast, cervical, colon, and esophageal cancer.

  1. Strawberries are an excellent source of antioxidant-promoting vitamin C and manganese. They are also a very good source of dietary fiber, iodine, and folate. Plus, strawberries are a good source of copper, potassiumbiotin, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin B6, and omega-3 fatty acids.

  1. Note* Both strawberries & watermelon have a high water content and contain fibre which means it hydrates us & helps keep our bowel movements regular. 

This wonderful refreshing & hydrating drink can be drank as is or for all you adults you can add a splash of vodka for when entertaining or just for yourself :)  **note however you will be cancelling out the hydration part of these fruits** but it's still certainly a wonderful fruity & healthier version to a regular sugary version of a margarita. Enjoy and mostly may you be Nutritionally Well.
