Watermelon Jalapeno Quencher - Happy 4th July 2011

Know What You Eat: Tired of  same old sweet watermelon juice with different fruit combinations????..try this watermelon quencher with a KICK...On a hot summer day if you find your watermelon did not turn out to be  sweet, hey no ugly faces, no worries...just blend in all with a kick(jalapeno) and see the difference, with a whole bunch of vitamins watermelon is packed with antioxidants and has an extremely high water content, approx. 92%, giving its flesh a crumbly and subtly crunchy texture and making it a favorite thirst quenching fruit, so next time when you are very berry thirsty after coming from a grilling sunny day...dont grab a gatorade, instead grab this easy breezy watermelon quencher..which will replenish lost fluids in your body...So guys have a HAPPY, HEALTHY and SAFE 4th July...OFF  FOR WHITE WATER RAFTING.... ANYBODY ???


watermelon jalapeno juice


Serving: 4
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: NIL



Ingredients:
6 C Watermelon seedless, diced
1/4 tsp Jalapeno, finely chopped
1 Tbsp Sugar/Honey/Xylitol (only if the watermelon is not sweet)
1 Tbsp Mint/Cilantro, finely chopped
A pinch of salt
Few dashes of Black pepper pwd
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Ice 


Directions:
1.  Blend everything together until smooth, along with crushed ice, in your blender, strain it if you desire to remove that extra bulk in your juice..garnish with finely chopped mint / cilantro and jalapeno..

Good Note: This juice is just fantastic , but if even that seems like too much effort on a hot summer day, do what I did for lunch this afternoon. Slice up some watermelon, squeeze a juicy lime over it, and sprinkle it with a mixture of spicy chili powder and kosher salt. My mouth is still happy.

I have had lemon juice with chilli in a restaurant in Bahrain and every since try to make it at home...tastes too good. Watermelon can be had the same way, has never crossed my mind. Now i have a variation to my regular! Great pictures as always!
