Summers are at their peak, with the sweltering heat taking a toll on our body. Staying hydrated during these hot summer months is absolutely vital. While drinking lots of water is ideal in times like these, we often unknowingly end up piling calories through the drinks that we have in summer. Fizzy drinks and colas contain copious amounts of sugar which can do more harm to our body than good. Shilpa Shetty has a delicious, refreshing summer cooler recipe which contains no sugar. The fitness enthusiast uploaded the healthy recipe on her IGTV, take a look:
"Whether the kids are outdoors or indoors, the hot weather can cause dehydration which in turn can cause a number of health-related issues. Help your children stay hydrated with this healthy Cool Summer Drink," wrote Shilpa Shetty in the caption. The drink was aimed at kids, but with a summer cooler as delicious at this - even adults won't be able to resist!
The best part about the summer cooler is that is healthy, nutritious and fulfilling all-in-one. The watermelon, gooseberries and carrots in the drink have a number of health benefits, which help the body stay cool and hydrated. Mint leaves add a further cooling effect to the chilled summer drink. Another major factor is that the summer drink uses zero sugar, with honey as a substitute for the sweetness. The use of watermelon also lends an additional sweetness to the preparation. This makes the drink an amazingly healthy recipe.
