A Little on Watermelon

There’s a good reason why watermelon becomes such a popular food during the summer months. As it starts to get hotter and hotter, the need to stay hydrated becomes ever more imperative and we find ourselves reaching for colder foods, drinks and deserts. In particular, watermelon is perfect for warmer weather as it’s extremely hydrating (consisting mainly of water) and full of vitamin C! Blended into a juice with water and ice, using a NutriBullet or juicer, a drink of this Watermelon Cooler Mock or Cocktail is a great and delicious way to stay cool and refreshed.

As well as its impressive hydrating abilities, watermelon is an alkaline food which helps to neutralize the acidic components in our diets, thereby helping our bodies maintain a proper pH level.

All these benefits make this delicious and juicy fruit a great ingredient for refreshing summer recipes!
