Just the other day, I realized there is no category for drinks/beverages on my blog. I am a big fan of fruit juices and other drinks but I and my family are bigger fans of eating fruits as a whole. But I do prepare fruit juices, smoothies and other drinks at home though never thought of documenting any of these really. You derive the maximum nutritional benefit from any fruit when you eat it whole but if there are fruits that you do not like to eat, then juicing it is the best way to go.
It is summer out here and what better to chill out with than a glass of cold watermelon juice.
Watermelon and mint is a classic combination; the mint adds a touch of herby freshness to the cool sweetness of the watermelon. No extra sugar was added making this drink super healthy – high in nutrients but low in calories.
A perfect summer drink!
1. 2 cups watermelon; cubed
2. 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
3. Ice cubes
• Use a blender or juicer to prepare this refreshing drink.
• Blend together all the ingredients and serve chilled.
Note – To retain the fiber content, I did not strain the juice after blending. But you can if you want a clear drink.
Do you live in a hot and humid country? What are your special summer drinks?
