Watermelon with lemon

If we were to say “summer and fruit” your mind would surely bring up the image of a juicy watermelon. Right?

Have you ever tasted the wateriest fruit of all – with a whopping 95% water content – together with lemon? It’s a gourmet treat not to be missed!

Three steps are all it takes for you to have a tasty, thirst-quenching treat:

Fruit Version

  1. Cut out one slice of watermelon.
  2. Pour 3 to 5 tablespoons of LIMMI lemon juice over it
  3. Now enjoy the full taste of summer and get your fill of vitamin C with very few calories!

It’s a perfect treat to bring to the beach, enjoy as a starter, or as a wholesome dessert.

Smoothie Version

Some might prefer this fruit juice version:

  1. Puree 1 slice of watermelon.
  2. Strain the juice, to remove any seeds residue
  3. Thoroughly mix in 6 tablespoons LIMMI lemon juice (or LIMMI Sweet & Sour for a sweeter version) and let it rest in the refrigerator.

This healthy, vitamins rich and ultra-light snack helps remove excess fluids from your body while quenching your thirst.

An intriguing … aphrodisiac!

It is said that one slice of watermelon blended with lemon juice will act as an aphrodisiac if care is taken to include the white part of the rind.
This part is rich in citrulline which, once transformed into arginine, stimulates the immune system, promotes vasodilation and supports cardiovascular system health.
The aphrodisiac effect is obtained by boiling the blended watermelon and lemon juice mix for about 3 minutes, to obtain a 50% reduction in volume.
Grandmothers recommend refrigerating the love potion and drinking it on an empty stomach before breakfast or dinner.
