Watermelon can be so versatile.
Simply jazz up a salad with cubed watermelon.
Make a refreshing watermelon lemonade mocktail (4 cups watermelon, 1 ½ cup lemon juice, ½ cup sugar, 6 cups cold water – blended). Drink it from a wine glass and put your feet up.
Enjoy some homemade watermelon sorbet (blend 3 ½ cups frozen watermelon chunks with 2 tsp lime juice). You can even refreeze this into homemade icy poles.
Simply slice up some watermelon and take it to the next sports game – it will be an energising and hydrating hit with the players.
