This is the perfect summer drink, especially with a little “kick” added to it. It is versatile and can be done with many different kinds of fruit. Accidentally add some silver tequila or vodka and voila, you’ve got a party in a glass!
Minted Watermelon Cooler
3 cups cubed watermelon
1 cup water or coconut water, chilled
3-4 Tablespoons honey or maple syrup or stevia to taste
Zest of 1/2 a lime
Juice of 2 limes
6-8 large mint leaves
Makes 4 servings
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth but still slushy. If you have a vitamin you will want to use the tamper to help it along, not then stop the machine once or twice to give the slush a stir. Taste and adjust lime or sweetener if desired.
Tips & Notes~
You can use unfrozen fruit and add ice but the consistency will not be as slushy.
Add some chilled vodka or silver tequila in place of some of the liquid.
Swap out some or all of the watermelon for some frozen mango or berries.
