Melon Cooler

Watermelons can be round, oblong or spherical in shape and feature thick green rinds that are often spotted or striped.Watermelon is not only great on a hot summer day, this delectable thirst-quencher may also help quench the inflammation that contributes to conditions like asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, and arthritis.Watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin C and a very good source of vitamin A, notably through its concentration of beta-carotene.Cantaloupe is the most popular variety of melon of the cucumber family. Cantaloupes range in color from orange-yellow to salmon and have a soft and juicy texture with a sweet...Cantaloupe folate content is important for the production and maintenance of new cells, especially during pregnancy.This melon cooler is just the combination of this both watermelon and canteloupe melon together, i prepared fresh juice with watermelon and maple syrup, with few canteloupe melon balls which i scooped out from the canteloupe melon...This cooler is definitely a thirst quencher and rich in vitamins..This cooler goes rite to AFAM-Melon guest hosted by Ashwini, event started by Maheswari, also going to Srivalli's Mithai Mela..

                                      
1cup Watermelon cubes
