Watermelon-Rose Punch

Watermelon-Rose Punch


Try this refreshing thirst-quencher. Carve the flesh from a watermelon (about 8-10 pounds), removing the seeds. Juice the melon, then mix in 4-6 Tbsp. rose water and 2 Tbsp. raw sugar (optional). Garnish with mint sprigs and rose petals. Chill before serving.

Variations: Juice 1 pint of fresh organic strawberries with the watermelon.

Health Benefits: According to ayurveda, rose water has a cooling effect on the body, mind, and emotions. Watermelon is cooling, too- and rich in potassium, as well as antioxidants like vitamin C and beta-carotene.

I was just wondering, can you substitute 4 tbsp of Splenda for the raw sugar? Being a diabetic, I can't have a lot of sugar & prefer using Splenda for beverages (i.e. hot tea, lemonade, etc.)
