Plus it is FAT-Free and very very low in sodium. Food that are high in antioxidants allow your body to function optimally. The ones which contain amino acids help you build your protein which is essential for your well being.
How do you select a Watermelon? Searching for the red ripened ones only? So does it mean only the red part ones are good??? “NO” in fact all parts of a watermelon are good.There are lots of nutrients throughout. This also includes the white flesh nearest the edge which contains more amino acids which in turn means more protein 🙂
I remember my mother using this white part in making “Dosas” I tell you, they taste yum. You also can grate it and add it to the thick Neer Dosa batter and make dosas.
Coming to this recipe, Each of us have our own version of watermelon juice. Some do not add anything to it and just blend them and some play here and there with the ingredients (like me)
Sometimes I like to add mint leaves while blending the watermelon as it gives a refreshing fragrance. In this recipe I haven’t used any such. This recipe can be altered according to your convenience.
