Watermelon Cooler



 They say that god gives us only as much burden as we can carry around, only as much pain as we are capable of handling. So before you complain about how hot and humid this summer is turning out to be, just take a look around you. To beat the heat, He has given you an abundance of the juiciest and sweetest fruits ever - watermelons, sweet melons, mangoes, pineapples, papaya etc. And a multitude of street vendors to sell you these fruits in whatever form you may fancy ;) - salads, chaat, juice, smoothies, shakes and so on.

 With 92% of it's weight being water, no fruit can hydrate you better that the watermelon, and is a summer favourite. And not only is it a delightful thirst quencher, but it is also an excellent source of vitamins A, C and B6, has a higher concentration of the antioxidant lycopene than any other fruit or vegetable, and offers potassium and amino acids as well. And most importantly, it is a LOW FAT fruit. (Information Source: Click here).

 I tried out this great watermelon juice last week. Just blend together 3 cups of chilled watermelon cubes, 4 tablespoons of sugar, juice of a lemon, 1/2 a green chili and 10 mint leaves. This was a super refreshing drink with a slight kick from the green chili. So, what are you waiting for, didn't I give you enough excuses to try out this drink?


Good Day!
