Mint, Lime and Watermelon work beautifully together.

It also contains an Antioxidant which has been studied to help and improve symptoms of Allergies.Watermelons are delicious, summer fruits that you can Eat as a dessert, starter or as a refreshing Drink. 
Did you know, that Watermelons are 92% Water?!! This yummy Fruit has many nutrients, too many to list them all...

Lets get blending.....

Step 1- Place your Watermelon and Ice into your Blender or Food Processor. Blend until well mixed.

Step 2- Then add in the Sugar, Salt and Lime Juice. Blend again until fully combined & smooth.

Step 3- Pour your yummy Watermelon Drink into your favourite glass. Decorate with a slice of Fresh Watermelon and a light drizzle of Agave Nectar for added sweetness(This is optional) and a few leaves of Mint.
