How this smoothie aids in weight loss:
Watermelon is the perfect fruit for weight loss because it is low calories, contains beneficial nutrients such as vitamin C and lycopene, and a high water content which is good for replacing electrolytes and providing energy for workouts.
Mango is high in vitamin C and contains lots of fiber.
Pineapple Juice also has a high water content, is low in calories and assists with digestion.
