Yellow Watermelon Punch ~ Summer Cooler

Do you buy the yellow watermelon? I was always fascinated with the red watermelon and hardly brought in the yellow watermelon. But this time, kids insisted on buying and in fact we started loving the yellow one too. This simple punch can be made with any fruit like pineapple or oranges, however watermelons are best to keep the body cool. I added a handful of pudina, which gave a lovely flavour of pudina (alter as per tastes if you don't like pudina flavour). Beat the scorching sun with some homemade coolers that can help beat the heat and keep you cool to some extent. Quite simple to put together, so just blend and enjoy chilled !!

Preparation time ~ 10 minutes

Serves ~  glasses
watermelon 2 cups, cubed
pudina (mint leaves), a handful
ginger, a small piece
granulated sugar 2 tbsp
lemon juice 2 tbsp
ice cubes as needed 

  • I have used cooled watermelon, so haven't added extra ice cubes. But if you like it more chilled, then go ahead and add ice cubes.
  • Remove as many seeds as possible and cut the watermelon in cubes. Add to a blender jar along with pudina, ginger, sugar and lemon juice. Blend smooth. Add a cup of chilled water and strain the juice. Discard the residue.
  • Pour the punch in glasses and serve chilled with more ice cubes.

* The amount of sugar can be altered as per sweetness of watermelon.
*  I added a handful of pudina, which gave a lovely flavour of pudina (alter as per tastes if you don't like pudina flavour)
