The Vitamix Cucumber Melon Smoothie ingredients are cantaloupe, cucumber, green grapes, honeydew melon, lime, water, and crushed ice.
Cantaloupe – Cantaloupe is an odd-looking but delicious melon that boasts a unique antioxidant profile. It contains an extremely high amount of the free radical fighting flavonoid beta-carotene, more than just about any other fruit or vegetable. Cantaloupe has been found to support eye health, assist in the production of healthy red blood cells, and contribute to a strong immune system.
Cucumbers – Cucumbers, while commonly mistaken for vegetables, are actually a highly nutritious fruit. They are rich in the antioxidants flavonoids and tannins that have been found to prevent cell damage by blocking harmful free radicals. Cucumbers also help reduce blood sugar and have been shown to prevent some diabetes-related complications.
Grapes – Grapes have been cultivated for thousands of years and offer a host of nutritional health benefits. They are rich in vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, copper, and potassium. The antioxidant resveratrol in Grapes helps lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, and protect against heart disease.
Honeydew Melon – Honeydew melon is a sweet, fleshy relative of the cantaloupe that is very nutritious and offers several health benefits. It contains significant vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin K, and potassium, as well as the powerful antioxidants beta-carotene, phytoene, quercetin and caffeic acid. Honeydew melon can help reduce blood pressure, lower blood sugar, and promote healthy skin.
Limes – Limes are a sour citrus fruit that are best known for their immunity boosting nutrients. They are loaded with vitamin C and contain other important minerals such as riboflavin and niacin. Limes are also known to reduce the risk of heart disease, prevent kidney stones, and aid in the absorption of iron.
