A new twist on watermelon!!

I love watermelon!!! It is low in calories and refreshing ( 1 cup is  only 45 calories).  Now I hate water,  but I am learning the importance in drinking water daily. I have been trying different drinks to replace drinking my favorite PEPSI.  Today I ran across this recipe on skinnytaste.com and decided I would share it with you. I am going to try this tonight. Cheers!!!

Agua De Sandia (Watermelon Water)

Can’t think of anything more thirst quenching that this on a hot summer day like today – chilled watermelon pureed with water, a squeeze of lime juice over a large glass of ice. Agua fresca is as common in Mexico as ice tea is here in the States. And BONUS, since watermelon is naturally sweet, there’s no need to add any sugar!

Watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin C, lycopene, beta-carotene and a great choice for it’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits, so eat as much as you can, before the summer’s over.
