Besides the sugary taste, the truth is that watermelon has few calories…full of water and perfect during the summer to fight fatigue during the hottest days… it helps our organism reintegrating liquids and it has detox and diuretic functions!

Watermelon in good after a meal or as a snack! But also, you can make savory dishes to surprise your friends during the summer, or to bring them at the beach.

A simple but tasty recipe is watermelon salad, feta and mint! The first time I made one I wasn’t so sure…but now I love it! Just duce the watermelon and add feta, Tropea onions, some rocket and olives. Season with oil vinaigrette, lemon juice, grinded mint, salt and pepper. Salad is ready!

But there are many other recipes that you can make to taste watermelon in a creative way…

And with this hot weather, what’s better than a slush? It’s easy… just blend the watermelon, add water and sugar (if you want), filter everything and place it in plastic bags for the ice. Put it in the freezer for one night and the day after blend the cubes. Here’s your watermelon slush!

And if you want to surprise your friends, try “Watermelon Pops”, basically watermelon popsicles! Just cut the watermelon in slices, wand on each slice place a stick… perfect ?
