How to make Spiced Watermelon Juice
Watermelon juice is good enough, without any additives. If you are tired of the same old sweetened juice; here's a watermelon juice with a kick that you are sure to love. The chaat masala, black salt, white pepper powder & lemon juice in this juice, tones down the sweetness of the fruit & add different flavors to make it more interesting to your palate. This was the first juice, that I ever learnt how to make; probably during middle school years, probably from one of my friend's mom.
I prefer to drink the juice with the pulp, for added fiber in my diet. If you prefer, you can filter the pulp out & get a crisp & clear juice to quench your thirst. My first pic, shows juice without pulp & my second pic, shows juice with the pulp. Take note that the pulp tends to stay on top. Sharing this quick & easy recipe, with my friends over at CCC #37 :September Week 3.
