A Light, Refreshing Cooler made with Watermelon and Cucumber, a Perfect Non-Alcoholic drink to celebrate this Fall… Welcome November…!!
Agua Fresca is one of my favorites to enjoy fruits & vegetables. Puree it and add some lemon, sugar n herbs, this popular drink of Mexico & US is super easy to make…
Watermelon and Cucumber, two of the core ingredients of any cooler when paired together makes a great combination. Watermelon being a strong antioxidant also helps in neutralizing harmful radicals from our body. While, cucumber ranked as the vegetable with the highest water content, helps in lowering the excessive heat in your stomach and makes your body feel refreshed. Together, the two hydrating fruits make a complete drink.
Enjoy the drink!
