I found this amazing recipe on another bloggers page, and her pictures and the name of this drink is what screamed for my attention. This was before I had tasted it....The taste is nothing I have ever tasted as I used to HATE the thought of drinking watermelon jucie, but this refreshing drink, courtesy of Nabeela at Trial and Error has converted me! Im VERY much a watermelon juice drinker since TODAY.... Everyone must try this drink.
note: I used a seeded watermelon because I wouldnt even know where to even look for a seedless one in Abu Dhabi.

-Recent studies have linked lycopene to reducing the risk of prostate cancer and lowering inflammation that may cause hypertension and heart disease.
-Watermelon juice is used for urinary difficulties, edema and to clear summer heat.
-Watermelon seeds and the fruit itself are a classic remedy for gout
