Strawberries were swapped out of this recipe and replaced with one peeled grapefruit to make this Tomato, Grapefruit, Watermelon Fresca. It is great for after a workout when you’re sweaty. It will cool you down, and the amount of water from the trio helps rehydrate. All three fruits are loaded with vitamin C, which supports our body’s ability to make collagen, an important hair and skin protein.
