Nothing is as refreshing as water melon, in the scorching heat in summers. The fruit is a big green ball of sweet pink water but with a lot of benefits. It is a rich source of Vitamin A (an antioxidant), Vitamin B which is acts a strong energy booster, Vitamin-C which helps in building immunity and Lycophene which is an antioxidant that has been found to be good in fighting cancer.
In addition to the fact that watermelon can be a very good hydrating liquid, it is also loading with minerals like potassium. Potassium helps replenish the electrolytes in the body, which is normally the first thing that you lose during summers irrespective of, if you are just staying at home, travelling to work or, spending time at the beach.

Minty Watermelon Lemonade Recipe

Cut watermelon into large pieces and discard the skin. Remove black seeds, no need to take the white seeds out.
Add watermelon pieces in a blender jar.
Blend until smooth texture.
Transfer it to a large bowl.
If watermelon is sweet, no need to add sugar, but if it is not, taste the juice and if required, add sugar.
Add lemon juice and fresh mint leaves if you like . Stir well.
Add 1-ice cube in each serving glass and pour prepared watermelon juice into it and serve chilled.
If you prefer plain juice and not the pulp, then I would recommend straining it.
