The ingredients

1. Water melon (250 gm for a 300ml juice)


2. Mint leaves, Salt and Pepper(depends if you are looking to make it little salty) and ice cubes
3. Orange juice or any other juice, this is required to allow to mix the water melon pieces into juice.

2. Put all the ingredients in the mixer/blender and add the juice, good enough so that all the items can mix/blend.Blend for some time until all the melon pieces have mixed well into juice.Mix the items with a spoon if nothing going around.



3. Sieve it through.
