Drink Your Watermelon

For a super simple, refreshing and nutrient rich drink, it's hard to beat fresh watermelon 'juice'.  This is great on a hot summer day, before or after a workout, or anytime one needs a little energy boost. Only two ingredients needed:

1/4 medium sized watermelon 
1 lime

Wash the watermelon before cutting into, ( of course!) Take 1/4 of the watermelon and cut into chunks, including most of the white rind.  Place half of this into a high powered blender such as a Vitamix.
Wash and cut the lime into 4 pieces and place one piece (including the entire  rind) into the blender with the watermelon. Blend on high until liquified.  (A rather thick liquid actually.). Repeat with the remaining part of the watermelon and a piece of lime. Chill in the fridge and enjoy.  Half a lemon will also enhance the flavor of the watermelon, but the lime gives it a bit more zip. Doubling the amount of lime enhances the flavor even more, as well as increasing the amount of vitamin c.

Have a joyous and blessed day!
