Watermelon & Basil?
It’s amazing just how delicious watermelon tastes with other ingredients that may not typically come to mind. Lime, lemon, cucumber other fruits possibly are thought about but herbs and spices match up deliciously with this super fruit.
Today I would like to share a Rind Heart Watermelon Basil Juice. A few days ago I focused on the health benefits of watermelon rinds. They tend to change the color of the juice so it doesn’t look as bright and pretty. So to make something more pleasing to the eye I cut the rind into heart shapes and let it steep in my juice. This way the fibers from the rind are being released into the liquid. I wanted to make a drink that my friends would love the taste, look, be refreshed and surprised!
Rind Heart Watermelon Basil Juice
1 1/2 cup watermelon juice
1/2 lemon with rind, if organic
After I juiced this I added the above with…
1/2 cup coconut water
2 large basil leaves (you could use mint, parsley any of your favorite herbs)
A handful of ice (optional)
Heart shaped rinds (PLEASE use organic) and two wedges of lemon rind for appearance and some extra fiber 🙂
I recently also did a post on the health benefits of basil if that interests you.
Now that it is getting warmer out where I live I LOVE eating or juicing melons, cucumbers & citrus!
Thank you all for stopping by my site and taking the time out of your day! I hope this gives you all some fun ideas on how to make juices, drinks and so on more fun & let your personality show through. Much love ❤ and raw power 😉
