Recipe: Rockmelon and Raspberry Cooler

This drink is very refreshing and quick to make on a warm day. Feel free to use frozen berries as they are available all year round.

Rockmelon, or Cantaloupe, is an excellent source of Vitamin A and C, a very good source of potassium, and a good source of fibre, folate, Vitamin B6 and niacin.Combining these two superfoods makes a very healthy and very refreshing drink or snack. Option to add a banana, this will then turn from a cooler to a drink.

Raspberries are high in anti-oxidants and a host of other nutrients as well.
