Mangoes help to control blood sugar and blood pressure levels in body. Mangoes are very healthy and nutritious but has different vitamin content also. Watermelon which is full of Lycopene.

Today I have made a cool, refreshing summer drink with the combination of sweet mangoes and watermelon.


Let’s have a quick look on Ingredients

Preparation


How to make mango and watermelon juice...


1. Wash the mangoes and watermelon, peel off.


2. Dice or chop the watermelon and mango separately.


3. Blend mango cubes along with ice and puree them.


4. Same process with watermelon, blend and puree them too.


5. Half fill the mango puree in a serving glass or jar.


6. Now slowly pour the watermelon juice on it with the help of a spoon or directly.


7. On the top pour some fresh cream or half-melted ice cream of your choice and flavor.

NOTES


1. Avoid using extra sweeteners to the juice as these fruits contains natural sweetness.

2. Blend the fruits separately until smooth.

3. You can add tender coconut water to it to raise the nutritional value of this juice.

4. Use fresh fruits to make smoothies or any sort of juices.

5. Mango requires more liquid or water as it’s a pulpy fruit, so I added watermelon. Mango puree becomes thick in volume once blended. You can add water or coconut water to it to get the more liquid consistency.


Enjoy your summer with this refreshing drink…

Stay healthy and hydrated.
