Melons are renowned for their body-cooling capabilities and ginger is famous through the world for being a cure-all for pretty much any ailment. Combine the two and this is a perfect potion for a post-workout cool down on a hot summer day. Substitute the sorbet for lemon juice if this smoothie is too sugary.
