Watermelon Juice

      This watermelon slushy is just perfect for hot summer days, as this fruit contains 92% of water. Watermelons are ideal for health as they do not contain any fat or cholesterol and are high in fiber content and vitamins A and C and are also a good source of potassium.
      There are over 1,200 varieties of watermelon worldwide. Every part of a watermelon is edible, even the seeds and rinds.
      I would also like to share about the watermelon snow in the Sierra Nevada of California. This phenomenon is especially common during the summer months where snow has lingered from winter storms, mainly at altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet. The snow turns pink because of microscopic algae known as Chamydomonas nivalis, leaves and pollen of the white bark pine.
      Now let's get straight to the recipe of this irresistible thirst quencher. It was a very big hit in my house.

Ingredients (Serves 2)

Watermelon - 5 cups (deseeded)
Sugar as per taste
Lemon juice - 2 tsp
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Chat masala - 1 tsp


1) Cut the watermelon into chunks and place them in your blender with all the other ingredients and blend until smooth.
2) Serve chill and enjoy.


1) Personalize your juice to suit your palate. Replace water with sparkling water, decorate with mint leaves, watermelon chunks or simply freeze them into ice cubes.
