Ramadan is pretty hot this year. And it has me dreaming about juices. One of the juices I read about is Watermelon juice on another Pakistani food blog, Tickle those Taste Buds. They also have an album dedicated to Ramadan recipes on their facebook page.
I am not too fond of watermelon. When my dad does bring watermelon, I usually eat one or two small pieces. Watermelon juice seemed like a better option to consume this gift of nature.
This juice was received by my dad, who is not a big fan of juices. He asked me to make it again and enjoyed it at iftar time. The recipe called for fresh mint leaves which I didn’t have , so didn’t include.
2 cups of watermelon, with seeds removed
1 cup water
1/2 tsp ginger paste
Juice of 1 – 2 lemons
Sugar, to taste
8 – 10 ice cubes
Blend all the ingredients together. Pour into a glass. Add ice cubes if desired. Make the juice when required and watermelon goes bad pretty quickly.
