Watermelon juice is an excellent thirst quencher. It is tasty and keeps us rejuvenated during hot summer days.

Watermelon is 90% water, it also contains Vitamin A, D and calcium. It helps to keep the body hydrated. It is low in calories and rich in fibre, thus aids in weight loss. It is shown to fight against cancer. It is good for the heart. It is ideal summer fruit as it quenches the thirst and keeps the hunger pangs at bay.

It is always good to pack the refrigerator with summer fruits. You can use them to make candies, juices, ice creams, sorbets or just serve as a fruit salad. It is healthier than the sugar loaded drinks.

I often make mango candy during these monts, it is loved by kids and adults alike. Extract the pulp, blend it to a puree, put it in the moulds and freeze it, voila ! A guilt free dessert is ready in just a few minutes, isn’t it?

Watermelon juice is a refreshing drink, serve it during the mid-day or in the evenings, it is always a winner. It is tasty and makes an ideal drink to keep oneself hydrated.

A few other summer drinks that I have on my blog are : tasty Imli ka Amlana, refreshing Cucumber Lassi

Watermelon Juice Recipe

Ingredients: measurement used : 1 cup =250 ml

Cut the watermelon into chunks, remove the seeds and blend them in a blender. Add pepper powder, lemon juice and salt, give a swirl. Pour in glasses and serve.

Take a tip:
  • Cut the watermelon into pieces and keep them in refrigerator ahead of time. It saves the time and you will have a chilled drink. Otherwise, you need to chill it.
  • Add sugar if only needed.
  • You may top it small chunks of the fruit.
  • A few torn mint leaves too taste good.
