Watermelon Punch


Watermelon is a nutritious and delicious fruit packed with lots of vitamins and minerals. Iam from chennai ,where summer is really sultry and hot.U can see loads of watermelons on roadsides of Chennai to beat the summer heat. Its really fun to eat the ripe,red and juicy flesh of the melon.

Check out the health benefits of watermelon here.
This is a simple recipe which I learnt from my friend's mom during my college days. The ginger and lemon juices comined with melon turns out to be an excellent summer drink.
This is my contribution to the AFAM this month hosted by Bee of Jugalbandhi.


Ingredients

Watermelon chunks- 4 cups (deseeded)
lemon juice-2 tsp
ginger juice- 1 tsp
sugar-1tbsp
Method

Remove the seeds and the rind from the watermelon and cut them into cubes. With all the other ingredients blend until smooth in a blender . No need to strain the juice and no need to add water. Serve chilled or pour into ice trays ,insert a tooth pick and serve like a fruit pop.
