Whenever I buy a watermelon, I like to eat half of it, then freeze the other half in chunks to use later for smoothies. It’s high in vitamins A and C and also contains potassium and magnesium. Plus it’s great for quenching your thirst. You can learn more about why watermelon is so healthy in Medical News Today.
This recipe makes a slushie-like drink, or cooler, that is very refreshing on a warm Summer day.
It does require a little planning ahead to make this beverage since you’ll need time for the watermelon to freeze and for the hibiscus tea to brew and cool. But I think you’ll find it’s worth it.
According to Delicious Living, a 2013 study suggests this tart, slightly sweet and refreshing tea effectively lowers blood pressure and bad cholesterol. Researchers believe hibiscus’ ample anthocyanins are the source of its health benefits.
I like to leave the skin on the cucumber, but if it’s not organic, be sure to peel it.
