Watermelon and Basil

Watermelon may not always be appealing as a salad ingredient, but it can be a fantastic addition to water. Not only is it hugely colourful and appealing to the eye but it offers a sweet and tangy taste that is effortlessly complemented by fresh basil!

Serves: 2

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 chopped watermelon slices, skin removed
  • 1 mandarin or satsuma, finely sliced
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves
  • Water

Method:

  • Fill your water bottle with water.
  • Chop your watermelon slices down into smaller bites – roughly quarters, or maybe even smaller.
  • Add these and the mandarin slices to your water bottle.
  • Pluck some fresh basil (not too much – just a miniature handful will do) and scrunch it up in your hands.
  • Pop these leaves into your water bottle and give them a few moments to infuse.
  • Give the bottle a very gentle shake. Start drinking and feel refreshed!
