This Two Melon shake takes advantage of watermelon’s hydrating qualities and its abundant levels of vitamin C and the amino acid citrulline, which helps relax blood vessels and promotes heart health. To ease the liver, boost immunity and aid in digestion, bitter melons are also added along with coconut milk which is known for its ability to absorb any toxins in the body. This shake is as effective as it is delicious.
