  • thumb (small) size chunk ginger
  • 10-15 mint leaves

Watermelon and Summer go hand in hand like boyfriend and girlfriend!  So this drink is a toast to Summer and all the foods, activities and fun she brings!

This might surprise you, but watermelon seeds provide an excellent source of nutrients that also go hand in hand with summer activities!

Those annoying seeds don’t have to be pesky any longer because they have some great vitamins and minerals like manganese, magnesium, zinc, iron, and many amino acids that help the body attain optimal health.

Between the coconut water and the ginger {my special ingredient}, this drink is amazing to help replenish the body after being outdoors or exercising.

You can strain the juice of the pulp for a thinner drink. If you leave the pulp in, you can really taste the pungent ginger. I found Nirvana coconut water in large bottles at the health food market. Watermelon seeds are an excellent source of many nutrients so don't waste your time picking them out. Please use organic ingredients when you can.
