WATERMELON SLUSH - A summer splash!

Need something refreshing within minutes? Try this Summer Cooler to lift your senses and to keep yourself hydrated.

It is common for everyone to think only about Mangoes during the summer. Well, even I am like that. At the same time, it is hard to ignore this Water fruit. Its a joy to even look at the crimson red fleshy part embedded with seeds that resemble black pearls. And its double joy to look at the fruit's yellow twin.
The only factor that tells apart the fruit from its red counterpart is the yellow flesh that is the result of the absence of the pigment, Lycopene. The taste is almost similar but I personally feel that the Yellow (known as Yellow Crimson Watermelon) is sweeter. It is a package of nutrients and antioxidants but low in calories. Isn't this a good reason to eat Melons?
