Watermelon recipes you’ll enjoy all summer

BY The Blog Team

Aside from the beach and sand, nothing says summer like a little watermelon. No back garden BBQ is complete without this heat-wave-ready fruit, and this season, it’s tastier than ever before. Besides being insanely refreshing, watermelons are an excellent source of vitamin A, C, and B6. Plus, they’re jam-packed with loads of fibre and boast a seriously high water content. So, whether you’re looking for a mid-day pick-me-up or a super-sweet side, these 4 watermelon-infused recipes are all you need for a day in the sun. Disclaimer: they’re so good, you’re going to want ‘em all year round.
