Perfect fruit for summers: watermelon

Watermelon is a perfect fruit for summers. Full of water (evidently) that hydrates our body it has very low calorie content. Therefore I do not have to worry about gaining weight, and can have a plate full of watermelon slices without feeling guilty. This fruit is nutritious as well, as it is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

I had kept watermelon pieces in freezer to quickly chill them, but forgot to take them out in time. Now I had frozen watermelon pieces. I decided to prepare a smoothie as I had no intention of eating frozen watermelon. I neither wanted thawed but soft, mellowed pieces.

My mother-in -law preferred to sprinkle some salt and black pepper powder on her watermelon slices. Taking that idea, I added some black pepper powder and salt in my smoothie. I decided to add some mint, as it is summer, and mint gives freshness, and some strawberry crush to add some sweet-sour flavor. Little bit of lemon juice perfectly balanced the taste. Blending everything yielded very refreshing watermelon smoothie.

  • I love this recipe, where or what is strawberry crush? I found you through the #bloggingmeetup totally following all your stuff. I really enjoy the look of your blog!

    • Thanks Kim. Strawberry is crushed to produce pulp, and then sugar syrup is added to it to prepare strawberry crush. Citric acid and sodium benzoate are added as preservative. It is similar to strawberry syrup, the difference being, here strawberries are blended or crushed taking care not to puree them. I have used ready-made strawberry crush bought from the market. You can use fresh strawberries and some sugar in place of crush. In India fresh strawberries are not easily available in summers.

  • Awesome and delicious recipe! You did a good job on the video as well. I found you on #bloggingmeetup as well and I’ll be following your work ??????
