Melon and lemon chiller

Here, the heat is picking up slowly and I felt like wanted to have something light and quick to hydrate my body after breakfast.What else other than a perfect thirst quenching drink could help me ? So made this melon and lemon chiller and enjoyed every sip of it .


Water melon is my favorite summer time fruit.I like to pair it with mint and lemon. That's how this juice was born.

 
Here I have used a bit of grated beetroot also for the nice color and health benefit also. With fresh mint , lemon and a hint of ginger, it was a complete medley of different flavors dancing on my palette.







Having said that, lets quickly get to the recipe .

Ingredients


Water melon ....................  2 1/2 cups , cubed
Beet root ........................ 1 tsp, grated(optional)
Ginger ............................. 1/4 tsp grated
Honey ............................. to taste
Mint leaves....................  7
Lemon juice................... from half of a lemon
Water ......................... 3/4 cup 

Method


Just blend everything , chill and enjoy .

  2. 100% my kind of recipe with the added beetroot for color. That's what I do with everything -- try to kick up the color. But aren't melons the best? So juicy and sweet and hydrating, like you say. Thank you so much for bringing to the party!
