Summer causes a lot of dehydration and it is must to consume healthy drinks as well such as aloe vera juice, cucumber juice, chaas etc…
Watermelon is a perfect term used in English language as the fruit is pinkinsh or reddish inside which totally turns out liquid if blended well.
There are several ways a watermelon is termed in hindi such as tarbooj or tarbooz and its a favorite fruit for all the people out there in summer season.
How does a watermelon look like:
Watermelon is always in round or oval shape with a dark green or green in color with few white stripes here and there on the outer side.
The inside of watermelon is just a pinkish watery pulp with small black seeds stuck to the pinkish pulp inside. The pulp is quite watery and turns liquid even with a slight blend.
Ways of eating a watermelon:
- Watermelon is a blessed fruit to have as it is totally hydrating and acts as a coolant if consumed often and in summers it is best to drink the juice of it or just cut the pulp into cubes and have it.
- The cubes can be eaten by sprinkling some salt or black pepper powder or chaat masala powder all over the watermelon cubes, mixing well and using a fork to eat them.
- Eating the watermelon without adding any of the mentioned spices above makes it very light in taste and creates disinterest towards the fruit. Hence, it is must to add or sprinkle salt and pepper and taste the goodness of the hydrating fruit.
- A simple juice too can be made out of the wonderful fruit just by blending the cubes and serving which is also a simple way of using watermlon and also a healthy fruit that should never be ignored or avoided in summers.
This is the best fruit that one can have during summers apart from other things such as coconut water, buttermilk etc…
Benefits of eating or drinking a watermelon juice:
- The first and the best health benefit as we all know is nothing but the fruit is very hydrating, gives us cooling effect and it has lots of vitamins and nutrients that keep our body fit and healthy.
- Summers bring in heat, rising temperatures and along with that we all face sun strokes too and hence consuming it while hanging out protects us from sun strokes and we do not feel tired due to heat.
