Watermelon season is at it’s peak! From now through September, you can get some juicy, delicious Watermelon.
I’ve got two awesome Watermelon Recipes for you to try.
One Recipe requires a food processor. The other doesnot. I had to borrow a food processor from a neighbor. If you don’t have one, borrow one from a friend or neighbor.
Let’s make some Watermelon Sorbet!
- 2cups watermelon Cubed
- 1/2 Lime
- Cut the watermelon into small chunks.
- Place chunks into separate plastic bags for portion control. About 2 Cups of Watermelon per bag.
- Place the plastic bags in the freezer overnight. After several hours in the freezer, this will work, but if the watermelon isn’t completely frozen, the sorbet will be more slushy or watery… rather than a solid sorbet.
- Take out one bag of frozen watermelon. Place your chunks of frozen watermelon into a food processor, and add some lime juice. I used 2-3 cups of watermelon with half a lime, Don’t add too much lime juice in the beginning or it will fly out of the friggin food processor. I know…..I have experience!
- Continue to process the watermelon and lime juice in the food processor until you get a sorbet-like texture.
- If you want a sweeter sorbet, add in a little raw, unfiltered honey.
Eat and Enjoy your Watermelon Sorbet!
Here’s the 2nd Watermelon Recipe.
No Food Processor Needed!
Refreshing Watermelon Cucumber Salad
Servings as a Snack – 4
Servings as a Meal – 2
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. Sea salt
3 cups cubed cut, seedless watermelon
1 medium cucumber, chopped
1 cup crumbled feta
1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup. Fresh chopped mint leaves
- In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, and salt.
- In a large bowl, put the watermelon, cucumber, feta, red onion, and mint.
- Pour the dressing over the watermelon & veggies. Toss is all together to mix good.
- if you want to make it look more fancy….Garnish with more mint leaves and sea salt.
Watermelons are about 92 percent water….which makes them awesome to have in the hot summer to avoid dehydration. Watermelon is FILLED with nutrients. Each juicy bite has significant levels of vitamins A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, and lots of lycopene. Remember….I told you on previous episodes….that Lycopene is what gives fruits and vegetables their “RED” color. People eat foods containing lycopene for preventing heart disease, like “hardening of the arteries” the medical term is (atherosclerosis); Lycopene helps battle cancer by acting like a powerful Anti-oxidant. That makes Watermelon part of our Pac Man Family….Eat Watermelon and other “Red” colored fruits & veggies to help your Immune system fight prostate cancer, breast cancer, and cancer of the lungs, bladder, ovaries, colon, and the pancreas. Anti-Oxidants rule in your body Nation!
Lycopene is also used for treating the human papilloma virus (HPV) which is a major cause of uterine cancer.
You should divide This salad into 4 Servings as a snack or…..divide it into 2 servings if this is a meal.
Each Snack Serving will have about:
5 gms Carbs
20gms Fat (from your Olive Oil)
21gms Sugar (Natural Sugar from the Watermelon)
305 mgs Sodium
4 gms of Fiber
If you have this as a MEAL…….Each serving will have about
40 gms of Fat
11.5 gms of Protein
42gms of Sugar
8 gms of Fiber
This SUMMER Salad will fill you with Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron and Thiamine.
Make BOTH of these great WATERMELON SNACKS right now …….while Watermelon is in PEAK Season!
