With the arrival of April and the days becoming steadily hotter, it’s time to think of ways to beat the summer heat. One of this season’s most delicious fruits is the Watermelon. From the exotic outer skin to the juicy insides, there’s nothing about this perfect summer fruit that we don’t love. Here are 5 ways you can get the most out of your watermelon this summer:
- Drink up
Watermelon is the perfect fruit for a chilled drink. Throw together some ice, watermelon and lemon juice. Serve chilled. This all natural drink will definitely add a spring to your step. For extra hydration add some slices of cucumber to the mix. Healthy and delicious!
2. Freeze It
Bored of your usual ice cubes? Try freezing a bit of watermelon with water and watch your drinks come to life when you drop these cubes in your next summer drink.
- Homemade Ice Cream
Cut up watermelon rectangles, insert an ice cream stick in one end(the wooden kind are best for this). Freeze and serve. Voila! Homemade popsicles.
Cut some thin slices of watermelon and lightly grill or fry in a pan with a dash of olive oil. Garnish with chili flakes and sesame seeds.
Who needs meat when you have so many different types of fruit to play with in the summer. Take a skewer and add cubes of watermelon, slices of banana, apples, grapes and more watermelon.
So this summer, get creative and have some fun while making the most of watermelon season.
