Watermelon Energiser - Homemade pre and post-workout drink.

Pre-workout drinks are great to help boost energy levels and help stamina and strength whilst you're working out. Post-workout drinks help repair wear and tear of muscles and replenish glycogen stores to fuel the body.

Recipe for Homemade Watermelon Energiser


  • 1 cup watermelon

  • 1 cup coconut water

  • A pinch of pink Himalayan salt

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

How To Prepare

  • Toss the watermelon into a blender.

  • Blend well and strain the seeds.

  • Add coconut water, lime juice, and pink Himalayan salt.

  • Stir well and drink up.

Why This Works

This drink is loaded with natural sugars and is rich in bioavailable compounds like lycopene and vitamins A and C. It is also an electrolyte balancer. A study on 20 male cyclists supplemented with watermelon puree over two weeks showed that it enhanced endurance exercise performance and increased post-exercise antioxidant levels. Consume it 45 minutes before working out or 5-10 minutes after workout. Recipe and image borrowed from Stylecraze.
