Tracy Anderson's Refreshing Smoothie - Melon Mint Cooler
When it comes to healthy living, “you don’t want to drink your calories,” says Tracy Anderson, Sag Harbor resident and celebrity trainer who counts East Enders like Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez among her boldface clients. During summers in the Hamptons, one of her favorite ways to recharge after a tough workout is with a Melon Mint Cooler: a blend of watermelon, green tea, and mint. “Watermelon is very low in calories and it’s known for helping to aid in weight loss,” she says. “And the benefits of green tea are huge—it can prevent cancer and heart disease and lower cholesterol. Plus it gives you energy. The mint creates a harmony between the two and makes it really refreshing.”
- 1 1/2 cups of fresh watermelon
- A handful of fresh mint leaves (save a few for the garnish)
