Nutritional values

Watermelons are 96% water, so they contain hardly any fat or calories. At the same time, watermelons have a detoxifying effect and have long been considered a natural aid for kidney problems, rheumatism, and gout.

If you'd like your soup to be a bit more sour and refreshing, add the juice of half a lemon, which will also provide some vitamin C.
