Is there anything better than a cold, icy watermelon lime slush on a hot summer day? I doubt there is! If you agree, then keep on reading: here’s a lovely recipe to the cooling summer drink, with no added sugar like the normal slush drinks usually have.
This drink takes your thirst away, refreshes you, and gives you a great amount of C- and A-vitamins, fiber and potassium. Also, watermelon has this great antioxidant called lycopene, that, according to research, decreases the risk for cardiovascular diseases. Not bad at all from a summery drink, don’t you think?
this drink is quickly prepared, and it’s enough if the watermelon pieces are almost frozen: I diced the melon, left them in the freezer for about 20 minutes, and added some ice cubes as well. But if you have more time, go ahead and freeze the pieces properly and leave out ice cubes.
Watermelon has always been one of my favorite fruits, and I eat it tons during summer. This summer, even more than usually, I’m sure, thanks to this lovely drink!
Have lovely and refreshing moments,
