WATERMELON REFRESHER / WATERMELON AND ORANGE JUICE – SUMMER COOLER !!!

Scorching summer is just round the corner …What is better than a slice of watermelon on a boiling hot summer day ? So here i am with a nice ,quick and refreshing drink to relish on a hot summer day…”Watermelon Refresher” – the perfect thirst quenching solution !! I’m sure sipping this watermelon and orange juice will make you feel rejuvenated..

 

More than just a summer treat, watermelon is full of vitamins A,C and B6 pottasium and amino acids .And it is approximately 92 % water ,so very hydrating and low cal.You can make the plain watermelon juice too but addition of lime / orange gives extra zing and a pinch of Indian spices adds an extra dash..Here goes the recipe for Watermelon refresher , which is actually a no recipe..
