Summer coolers

Summer coolers

Hi everyone, I am sharing my favourite summer coolers recipes with you! These are one of my favourite ways to beat the heat as they’re refreshing, delicious and so easy to make.

Watermelon cooler
Super high in water content and low in calories, watermelon is an ideal summer fruit to keep you hydrated. It has tons of vitamin C, vitamin A, magnesium and B vitamins. I simply mix 1-1/2 cup of diced watermelon with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice into a blender and blend for a few seconds. Then I pour it into a glass, stir a tablespoon of soaked chia seeds to the mix, add crunched ice and mint and…Enjoy!

Lemongrass and lime cooler
I love the aroma of lemongrass! When combined with lemon, it becomes a refreshing health tonic. Full of antioxidants – the combination is good for digestion, for hair, skin and nails. It also helps reduce fatigue, gently detoxing your body and strengthening your immune system. This is how I like to make mine: In a pan, add 2 cups of water, 1 crushed stick of lemongrass and 3-4 slices of lime. Boil for 15 minutes, then fill half a glass. Add 1-2 teaspoons of organic maple syrup, stir well, add crushed ice. Your lemon grass cooler is ready!

Grapefruit lemon cooler
Grapefruit are a power house of nutrients. Not only are they loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, calcium and magnesium, they are also excellent for our skin, immune system and overall health. If you are on any medication then do ask your doctor if you can consume this fruit as it can interact with certain medications. How I like to make my cooler: Take out the juice from half a grapefruit add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice into a glass, add 1-2 teaspoons of organic maple syrup and stir well. Add sparkling water and crushed ice, and of course top it with mint for an extra refreshing taste.
