Hot weathers are usually conducive for cold drinks. Even though the weather has been quite pleasant, temperatures are expected to rise next week. That means its time to put away your boots and put on your sandals. Well, wait another month for that. Anyhow, if you are looking for a drink that is not only cool and refreshing but good for your skin as well, I have the quasi-perfect solution for you. This recipe I’m about to share with you is very easy to prepare provided that you have a blender. With no added sugar or any artificial flavours for that matter, the ingredients only consist of melon, cucumbers, a bit of lemon juice and mint leaves. It may sound weird to some of you but the longer you chill this drink, the more refreshing it tastes. I don’t mind the pulp but if you do, you can always strain it. Why buy summer drinks when you can make your own using natural ingredients? It is thought that melon helps clear up blemished skin. After taking a couple gulps, I noticed that my skin is less oily. You don’t have to take my word for it though. I like melon regardless.
For this recipe, you will need:
- 1 lbs of melon seeded and cut into cubes (you can scoop it out with a spoon)
- 2 large cucumbers chopped
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons of fresh mint leaves chopped
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth. Add a bit more water if too thick. Serve cold.
