That mint just takes the watermelon flavor to a new level, making this watermelon lemonade so refreshing! With only 5 ingredients it doesn’t get any easier!
Watermelon juice couldn’t be easier to make. You don’t need a fancy schmancy juicer, just a blender. Nice and refreshing with plenty of crushed ice, it’s easier to make than you may think with Thermomix. I thought my watermelon juice was perfectly sweet without any added sugar, but I added a squeeze of honey for that extra zing.
Watermelons are mostly water — about 92 percent — but this refreshing fruit is soaked with nutrients. Each juicy bite has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. There’s even a modest amount of potassium. Antioxidants help prevent damage, and cancer. Your body uses vitamin B6 to help break down proteins, so the more protein is consumed, the more vitamin B6 is needed. Potassium, although a relatively small amount is in watermelon, helps balance fluids in your cells. Low potassium levels sometimes cause muscle cramps.
