This snazzy orange coloured-carbohydrate rich Melon and Papaya Juice is a fulfilling breakfast idea. Lemon juice makes it more interesting by imparting a tangy flavour. Papaya has a laxative effect thus helping to relieve constipation. As a an added benefit, melons contain a substance "adenosine" that makes blood less sticky, thus reducing the risk of blood clots and heart attack. Because of its high vitamin A content this tango is a boost to the immune system as well. Make a quick breakfast sandwich like Herb Cheese and Roasted Capsicum Sandwich or Vegetable Grilled Sandwich and have it with a glass of Melon and Papaya Tango to keep you satiated till lunch time.

All too easy to make but fabulously tasty, this Watermelon, Orange and Feta Salad will sweep you off your feet with its amazing blend of textures and flavours. Watermelon and orange are fruits that you get all round the year and they combine beautifully because the watery sweetness of watermelon and the juicy tang of oranges complement each other very well. Add to this some feta cheese and you bring in tinges of salty creaminess to the salad. A dressing of olive oil and pepper is simple but effective in highlighting the positives of this salad. It is really a wonderful treat to munch on, and perfect to serve at parties, get-togethers and kitty parties.

The thoughtful combination of juicy watermelon and pulpy guava laced with lemon juice results in a stunning juice that has a unique mouth-feel. Remove the seeds from the watermelon first, as the juice is not to be strained after blending. If you strain, you will lose the grainy texture. Savour every sip slowly to relish the well-balanced flavour and satiating texture of this Watermelon and Guava Juice.

This easy and quick juice is a wonderfully refreshing energiser. Watermelon is rich in water and fibre, which makes it a perfectly heart-friendly, low-fat ingredient. Pineapple too is a low-fat fruit, rich in nutrients and fibre. This makes the sweet and tangy duo a wonderful pair for your breakfast! In this delicious Watermelon and Mint Drink, the fibre is retained because we do not strain the juice. When combined with chopped mint, both the flavour and mouth-feel of this juice get a perky uplift... an effect that is sure to be passed on to you as well!

Watermelon and mint always taste best together, but are you aware that there is more good reason to combine them? Watermelon is an excellent source of iron, while mint has not just iron but vitamin C too. Iron and vitamin C work best as a team as the latter is needed for iron to work best. So, now, always remember to throw in a few sprigs of mint every time you use watermelon in a salad or juice! The Watermelon and Mint Salad is a winner in terms of taste and good looks, as the olives and mint leaves stand out against the pinkish red background of watermelons. Serve this refreshing salad fresh or chilled.
This lovely red coloured Finger Watermelon Juice has its own taste and flavour.... thanks to the unique taste of ginger. It is a sure shot winner with one and all! Watermelon, a vital fruit loaded with iron and is also an effective diuretic. Besides having the goodness of watermelon, this vitality juice also contains the miraculous power of 'gingerol', a substance present in ginger that dilates blood vessels and improves blood circulation. Team up with Chawli Beans and Mint Burger or Green Tomato Salsa and Veggie Wrap to satiate you in a tasteful way when you are oh-so-hungry!

Everybody’s favourite, watermelon is God’s gift to mankind to help beat the hot summer sun! Here is one more reason to love this refreshing fruit – it is a wonderful source of iron! By making it into a salad along with vitamin C rich foods like orange, sweet lime and lemon juice, you can improve the iron absorption. Aromatic parsley enhances the Citrus Watermelon Salad by bringing in more iron, and a tantalising colour and flavour too.
