5 Summer Fresh Ways to Enjoy Watermelon by @BlenderBabes

No food screams summer like watermelon. The sweet, juicy, vibrant fruit is the perfect treat on a hot summer day. As much as it is delicious, watermelon is definitely a nutritious addition to your diet. Watermelon health benefits: it contains thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, choline, lycopene and betaine!

While it’s deliciously satisfying biting right into the juicy flesh alone, here are 5 new and healthy ways to enjoy the fruit of the summer!

5 Summer Fresh Ways to Enjoy Watermelon by @BlenderBabes1. Drink it.  WTRMLN WTR

On a hot day nothing quenches your thirst for something healthy quite like a cold-pressed juice. Now you can drink your watermelon with the newly launched WTRMLN WTR. WTRMLN WTR is rich in electrolytes – 6 times the amount of your regular sports brand drink– making it essential for summer hydration. WTRMLN WTR also has more potassium than a banana for hearth health and cramp prevention for your summer workouts.

2. Grill it.  Grilled Watermelon with Feta

With grilling season at its peak, there’s no reason why watermelon can’t partake in the fun! Grilling watermelon cuts through some of the sweetness and offers a completely different flavor profile.

Cut fresh watermelon into 1 to 1.5 inch triangle wedges, leaving the rind on the base. Place directly onto a medium-high heat grill for 1-2 minutes a side. Remove from grill, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and honey. Then top with crumbled feta and season with dried oregano, sea salt & pepper.

3. Spike it.  Watermelon Slushy Cocktail

5 Summer Fresh Ways to Enjoy Watermelon by @BlenderBabesIts BBQ season! What better way to treat yourself and guests than a spiked fresh watermelon slushy. It’ll be sure to be a party hit!

Recipe: Add one cup of frozen watermelon cubes into a blender with 1/3 cup WTRMLN WTR, juice of half a lemon and 1 oz of vodka (if using fresh watermelon, just add ice!). Blend until slushy. Pour into a glass and garnish with a small bunch of fresh mint.

4. Dip it.  Watermelon Tomato Salsa

Step up your traditional salsa’s game with a kick of fresh watermelon. The sweetness of the watermelon fuses perfectly with the salty and spicy flavors of your typical tomato salsa, making for a perfect dip at your summer party.  

Ingredients:   

1 cup fresh Watermelon, finely diced
6 Roma Tomatoes, seeded and diced
♥ ½ large White Onion, finely diced
♥ 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
♥ 1 Jalapeño Pepper, seeds removed and minced
♥ Handful of fresh Cilantro, leaves only
♥ 1 Lime, juiced
♥ 1 Tbsp extra Virgin Olive Oil
♥ Sea Salt & Pepper to taste

 

Instructions: 
Add all ingredients into a large bowl and mix well. Refrigerate for at least two hours before serving. 

5. Freeze it.  Frozen Watermelon Pops

5 Summer Fresh Ways to Enjoy Watermelon by @BlenderBabesSwap out sugar! Fresh watermelon alone has all the components necessary for a hydrating and cooling ice pop.

Chop the flesh of half a watermelon into large chunks. Add to your blender, (we love Vitamix and Blendtec!) and blend until smooth. Pour into Popsicle molds and freeze overnight. Enjoy!
