cool and sweet

It seems that watermelons are here for most of the year. I bought one to serve after dinner but it was not sweet at all, though it was deep red. The next day the leftover chunks became a nice healthy drink. Served it to some guests of mine and they could not believe that I had not added any sugar to it. What was the secret ingredient? Read on to find out. 

6 to 8 servings

6 cups of chopped watermelon 
1 large beetroot 
1 cup water
1 tsp ginger paste
¼ tsp salt

  1. Cut the watermelon into small cubes.
  2. Wash and peel the beetroot. Cut it into half and boil in 1 cup of water till done.
  3. Cut the beetroot into cubes.
  4. Put the watermelon, beetroot, leftover water from boiling the beetroot, ginger paste and salt in a liquidiser jug and blend.
  5. Sieve the juice to remove any seeds that may be present.
  6. Chill till required.
  7. Serve with ice cubes.
Tips :
  • Adding a pinch of salt to any juice brings out the flavour.
  • Instead of ginger can add mint leaves.
  • Freeze it in lolly moulds to make ice pops.
