The potassium in avocados is great for regulating high blood pressure and coconut water is incredible at kick starting your digestive tract if you’re struggling with constipation. Just don’t drink too much.

If you haven’t tried coconut water I’d definitely recommend as it’s packed full of electrolytes and can ease the acidity in the body as well as helping reduce dehydration. which in this heat is a must.

Cucumbers are basically 95% water which can help with hydration and cooling.  Plus by keeping the skin on which is high in insoluble fibre will give you a boost if you’re feeling a bit sluggish in the digestive system helping food pass through the digestive tract quicker.

Celery has been said to aid restful sleep and in addition to being rich in fibre it also contains an abundance of vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin K, folate and potassium.

The lime in this smoothie is so refreshing and adding a handful of ice is bound to keep you cool in this heat.
