When the sun is at its peak, all you need is gallons of something refreshing to drink.
I have banned canned fruit juices & other soft drinks from making an entry into our home for obvious reasons. But, the little one loves juices & he often demands for a helping. I am all for freshly made juices & come to think of it, it actually doesn't take much time to make fresh fruit juice & smoothies.
So, this summer, we have been having a lot of Tender Coconut, Nimbu paani & other easy to make mocktails. So much better than those tetra pack ones & guilt free too because you can control the amount of sugar that goes in
While we mostly eat watermelon as is with Chaat Masala sprinkled on top, this Watermelon & Orange Cooler is a refreshing change. I love Oranges & thankfully the green coloured oranges from Coorg are very much available. They are sweet with a hint of tartness just the way Oranges should be.
So, this Watermelon & Orange Cooler was born out of Summer Boredom & Heat
You can add a sprig of Mint Leaves while blending.
You can strain watermelon pulp before serving. It will result in a slightly thinner concoction. I preferred to have that little bit of fibre left so I didn't strain the juice
Make sure you remove all the seeds from the watermelon before blending
