Watermelon Strawberry Cooler
This watermelon strawberry cooler is hydrating, refreshing, and so ridiculously delicious. It’s easy to prepare and is the ultimate summer drink.
When summer rolls around, we make sure we always have the two main summer ingredients at home: watermelon and tons of berries. And we have been enjoying these every day. But today, I decided to switch it up a little. Instead of eating a bowl full of juicy strawberries and freshly cut watermelon, I whipped up a deliciously refreshing cooler that we could enjoy outside.
And let me tell you, it was absolutely devoured by everyone!

This Watermelon Strawberry Cooler Is:
Perfectly Refreshing. This is a wonderful way to cool down after a hot summer day. And if you choose to add in the handful of mint leaves, the refreshing factor goes way up.
So Healthy! Here’s what I love about this cooler the most. Not only is it so tasty, but it’s actually really good for you! The only added sugar comes from a tablespoon of honey. But if you’d like to omit it and have a cooler that has no added sugar, that’s fine too! It will still be delicious – just a little bit on the tart side! Plus, this watermelon strawberry cooler is hydrating and full of vitamins and minerals.
Easy To Make. The only bit of prep work you would need to do is cutting the watermelon. Then, all you have to do is add your ingredients to your blender, and enjoy.
If you’re looking for a yummy way to cool down and hydrate, I highly recommend making this Watermelon Strawberry Cooler.
