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.
