Watermelon juice is an effective thirst quencher and coolant to beat the summer heat with amazing health benefits. Basil is healthy and provides a lot of cooling to the human body, so this is a no-brainer as a must have to drink every day. Best served when chilled, this quick recipe is sure to get you refreshed after a hot and tiring day.

I make this watermelon juice very often. I usually drink it a glass of it after my morning workout. As watermelon is made up of 92% of water. Thus it is very hydrating fruit. It is perfect to have after exercise or a day in the sun.
