What’s a Watermelon Smoothie Cooler?
When summer rolls around, we make sure to always have watermelon and berries on hand. We go through them like crazy, to the point where I started to think of other ways we could enjoy them instead of straight out of a bowl.
Since the heat and humidity where we live are pretty severe, I thought a refreshing drink would be a perfect choice! I added coconut water for its subtle flavor and hydrating properties, along with a little mint and lime to make the flavor as vibrant as possible!
This nutritious and delicious drink will make people of all ages feel good from the inside out!
- Super Refreshing: This beverage is a great way to cool your body down after a hot summer day. Plus, if you add in the mint leaves, the refreshing and cooling factor goes way up!
- Healthy: I think this is what I love about this drink cooler the most. Not only is it super tasty, but it’s actually really good for you. The only added sugar is from a tablespoon of honey (which you can omit), and the watermelon and strawberry are full of vitamins and minerals.
- Super Simple: The only prep work is cutting the watermelon! Otherwise, the blender does all the work for you.
