WATERMELON COOLER

WATERMELON COOLER Its summer and how can I forget watermelon, so today I am going to share the recipe for a watermelon cooler which my mother often prepares. This is definitely a much needed beverage for the season as watermelon has high water content in it and also contributes to many health benefits. This is a seasonal fruit so I try making it very often during summers which will also keep you hydrated.
