The warm weather is finally on it’s way and all I want is fruit. Watermelon is one of my favourites to eat in the morning because it’s super hydrating. All you need for this drink is watermelon and fresh mint. So simple and so good.
As my boyfriend is in France for 2 weeks I've planned a super duper fruitarian week!
Dealing with my "already ripe" fruits, I created this super salad... maybe the best dish I've ever had! The pear just lifts up the sweetness of the pineapple, enhanced by the freshness of the herbs and the "zing" of the lime... Yummy! (Picture to come!)
This drink is adapted from Everyday Raw by Matthew Kenney and is delicious! The sugar content is very low (about 16 grams per serving from the agave). The original recipe used more agave which you can if you like! It's not very minty so if you want more mint flavour, add a lot more mint leaves ;) If you're turned off by opening a coconut, DON"T BE! It gets easier the more you do it and it's SO worth it. Not as thick as a chocolate shake but is delish and very similar!
