Watermelon Mint Refresher
A refreshing and hydrating summer drink made with watermelon, lime, mint, strawberries and coconut water.
- 1 ½ cups watermelon
- ½ cup strawberries
- 1 cup coconut water
- 7-10 mint leaves roughly chopped
- 1 lime juiced
- lime sparkling water
- Watermelon Mint CBD optional
Blend all ingredients in a blender, besides the sparkling water.
Fill half your glass with the watermelon mint drink, and the other half with sparkling water. Drink over ice if desired, or blend ice with your beverage.
As watermelon has such a high water content, adding ice can sometimes make the drink too watery. To combat this, I freeze the watermelon and use minimal ice in the blender. It will still taste great if you add ice, but the drink may separate quickly.
To freeze the watermelon, I place it on a sheet pan with parchment paper and set it in the freezer for a few hours. Once frozen, I transfer the watermelon to a gallon-size zip-top bag. This way, the wet watermelon doesn’t freeze together in one big chunk.
