This is the best, fresh, cold drink on the hottest “dog days” of summer. Watermelon is full of vital nutrients and vitamins, is known to help ward off cancer, is anti-inflammatory and guards against oxidative stress in the body. It is also an amazing kidney tonic. When you combine it with fresh lemon juice, you not only get a thirst quenching, satisfying drink, but a cooling, astringent tonic full of stabilizing vitamins to keep you properly hydrated.
1/2 fresh watermelon
1 lemon – squeezed juice only (do not blend peel or juice will be bitter)
Cut flesh from watermelon into cubes, squeeze juice of lemon, add to blender and blend until liquified.
