Try this yummy Watermelon cooler recipe, perfect for these hot summer days and a great treat to make with the family!
Watermelon is the perfect fruit to serve to kids and adults alike during warm weather as it contains over 90% water! This fact makes it super hydrating as well as being a packed full of Vitamins A and C and many other important nutrients and antioxidants.
I use fresh watermelon when making this summer cooler but you can also use frozen watermelon along with a handful of ice which will make a more slushy-like drink instead!
- 1 litre sparkling water
- 300g cubed watermelon
- juice of 2 lemons
- 2 tsp honey
- fresh mint and ice to serve
Add half the ingredients except the ice and mint to the blender and blast away until smooth – approx 30 seconds
Strain through a sieve and pour over your chosen glass full of ice (I prefer to use crushed ice as it gives a crunchy slush vibe) you can add a sprig of mint for garnish if you want to be a little extra
Repeat with the remaining ingredients
Lidded mason jars are a perfect way to serve up this summer cooler and can also be used to store the juice in the fridge until ready to use ( just don’t add ice until ready to serve! )
Now all you need to do is go grab your watermelons and do your best dirty dancing impression “I carried a watermelon!”
Just a little note – use your own judgement regarding the quantities you add to your blender as I’m aware blenders do vary in size! Just try to split the ingredients evenly between the servings.
