Here summer has officially started, summer vacation began mercury has started touching 90°, Yeah..the only wow factor of summer is watermelon. Its a perfectly packed and wrapped nature’s gift for summer. I always wonders about watermelon for its vibrant color combination, a dark lovely textured green on the outer side, beautiful pink which accentuated black seeds and perfect white which enhances all these bold colors.
Do not scare by looking at the size of this fruit. Looks at them by feeling it is a big potful of tasty juice. Cutting and storing them, of course, a worth full job for enjoying this treat. By using tiny spoons to scoop the melon as tiny balls and add this to the juice. It is fun to have watermelon balls in our juice.
Coming to this recipe, to make the body cool in the summer heat, it is advised to maintain the hydration in our body. Watermelon juice rather than helping the body to balance its hydration but also a very tastier option. I never dilute watermelon juice, but if you prefer diluted juice, you can do this by adding water and sugar in the ratio of 1:1/4, 1 cup of water and 1/4th cup of sugar. I did not add lemon juice as I love the sweetness of watermelon.
