If you ask us, watermelon is the best summer fruit out there. My father tells stories of having watermelon parties for his summer birthday as a kid. When I was pregnant with my oldest, it wasn’t uncommon to find me with a large bowl of watermelon during those last few weeks in the hot summer months.
Even the youngest of my kids loves watermelon so much that he gets angry when we run out. (Then again, that could be the toddler temper tantrums kicking in.)
5 Reasons You Should Love Watermelon
- Even the blandest watermelon is nice and juicy.
- A perfectly ripe watermelon is deliciously sweet.
- Watermelon is a great way to keep kids hydrated, since the flesh is over 90% water content
- It’s the perfect healthy dessert at only 40 calories per cup
- Watermelon is high in vitamins A, B6, and C, and is filled with the phytonutrient lycopene.
As if that wasn’t enough reason to love watermelon, my spectacular summer blog hop co-host, Susan, from A Purdy Little House is sharing today her recipe for a delicious watermelon mojito! (Confession: I tried it already and it was delicious. Perfect for a hot summer afternoon) And if liquor isn’t your thing, she’s even got a non-alcoholic version you can try with the kids. Yum!
