Christmas Cocktail & Appetizer: With Watermelon

Watermelon is full of anti oxidants – a good source of Vitamin A and C. The high water content of watermelon gives it fat burning benefits, helping to make the body's metabolism work more efficiently. So, it’s very healthy to eat. I share two Recipes below:


* Watermelon Cocktail *


Ingredients

2 cups of chopped seedless watermelon.
1 piece of seedless orange.
2 bananas.
1 cup of seedless grapes.
1 bottle of any dry champagne.

Preparation

  • Peel the Seedless Orange and cut into sections.
  • Peel and slice the bananas.
  • Cut grapes into halves.
  • Toss the fruit together in a bowl.

Serving: Divide the fruit in the bowl among 4 – 6 Champagne glasses.
