It seems, this year, the hottest and most humid of days are coming at the end of summer.
According to Ayurveda, an accumulation of summer’s heat, can increase the pitta dosha and leave you feeling fatigued, irritable, and impatient. Watermelon juice is a great way to cool down and stay calm on a hot day.
Watermelon is known for its cooling, hydrating, and mild diuretic properties. And who can resist its gorgeous pink color?
I add a pinch of salt and mint to balance the intensely sweet nature of watermelon.
It is important to note that in the way of optimal digestion, melons should always be eaten alone. If enjoying a watermelon juice, wait a couple of hours before your next meal as to support best digestive health.
4 cups chopped organic seedless watermelon
1 tbsp mint leaves
1-2 pinches Himalayan pink salt
- Place all ingredients into a blender. A Vitamix works great as the wand attachment can press down the melon into the blade.
- Garnish with a mint leaf and enjoy!
