Here in Seattle we are still having nice days. Yesterday afternoon it was almost 80 degrees! Sure, the leaves are getting yellow and they are starting to fall from the trees and cover the sidewalks, but the temperature is still warm around here. I think of it as Mother Nature's way of making it up to us Satellites for the late start of spring (or completely lack of it...)
So that means I am still enjoying summer-type foods. I still use my outdoors BBQ pretty much daily, have chilled soups and refreshing salads. I actually haven't cooked any "fall food" yet. Today it was warm, and I decided to make this juice which is very refreshing on a warm day. I actually make this drink every summer, several times.But that doesn't mean it can't be enjoyed when the mercury drops a little bit.
Besides, if you are getting a typical fall-entering cold or flu, the ginger in this juice will help you feel better.
I used one of those personal size seedless watermelons. It doesn't mean they are really seedless, it means it has less seeds than a regular watermelon.
I chopped the watermelon into chunks. Peeled and grated a 1-inch piece of fresh ginger. Blended it all with a teaspoon of honey.
If you want to, you can strain the juice, I normally don't bother, unless there were a lot of seeds in the fruit.
Refrigerate and serve very cold.
This a great healthy snack, a good addition to the breakfast table and for me it also works as a decaffeinated pick-me up drink. I thinkit's all the frsh ginger in it, it really wakes me up!
