Yuzu Melonade

In Japan in the hot humid summer people like to eat watermelon or Suika (スイカ)

It’s a refreshing fruit to eat as it has a high water content.

So why not make this cooling yuzu melonade to quench your thirst on a hot summer day.

Just add one cup of chopped watermelon to a food processor blend and strain and chill in the fridge until ice cold.

Divide between two glasses and add a teaspoon of yuzu juice to each glass and also a pinch of Himalayan pink salt to bring out the flavour of the watermelon and stir

Add to this ice and mint and top with either sparkling mineral water or for an alcoholic drink some sparkling white wine for a summer cocktail

Watermelon is lower in sugar than other melons and high in lycopene for bones and heart health
