Our post on 25 flushing foods lists many naturally diuretic foods that you can eat to help ease discomfort associated with water retention. This recipe includes four simple ingredients – all naturally and mildly diuretic, that blend together to make a refreshing and delicious watermelon mocktail.
Naturally Diuretic Watermelon Mocktail
- ¾ Cup fresh pineapple, cut.
- 2 Cups fresh watermelon, cut.
- 1 Tbsp. Ginger root, minced (Alt. 1 tsp. ground dry ginger root)
- 1 Lemon, juiced.
- 1 Cup ice*
Makes two 8-10oz servings.
Cut pineapple and watermelon into chunks. Place ice into blender. Add pineapple, watermelon, minced ginger, and lemon juice. Blend until smooth. Garnish with extra fruit and/or lemon slice.
*Add ice to taste. For a more frozen watermelon mocktail version, freeze pineapple slices prior to blending, chill the watermelon, and add ice sparingly until desired consistency is achieved.
