Watermelon juice and strong mint tea combine to make an easy and delicious refreshing summer drink.
Summer is such a wonderful season. All the sun and fun, BBQ’s, holidays and outings. Summer is all about wonderful food too.
Drinks can be refreshing, tasty and nutritious without being full of sugar. Did you know you can make a no sugar added slushy?
Yummy watermelon is one of my favourite summer fruits. You can use it so many ways. Just cut and eat, use it in salads, frozen treats, grilled, or used in drinks.
It is great when you can add nutrition into your day so easily. We all know how good watermelon is for you. It helps keep you hydrated, contains vitamins, is fat and sodium free, and low in calories. Did you know watermelon can be considered a fruit or a vegetable? That is unique for sure.
With this watermelon drink recipe, you don’t have to worry about how to slice a watermelon. You only have to roughly chop it. Your blender will do all the work. You can save a few watermelon cubes for garnish if you like.
WATERMELON MINT REFRESHER INGREDIENTS
This refreshing summer drink is a combination of mint tea and watermelon juice. No added sugar since the watermelon is nice and sweet on its own.
Did you get that? 2 INGREDIENTS is all you need! This is the perfect watermelon cooler for the kids too. My grandkids LOVE it!!
It is so easy to make watermelon juice. I just use my blender on the “liquify” cycle, put in pieces of watermelon, and in a few seconds, I have watermelon juice. Pour it into a pitcher and keep it in the fridge. Ready to use whenever you like. I love drinking it when I need a quick burst of energy.
Since watermelon is mostly water, any blender will work. If there is too much pulp, you can always pour it through a strainer. Personally, I don’t mind the pulp. Added fiber works for me. I love eating watermelon.
For the mint tea, you can use whatever kind you like. I happen to prefer a tea that is more spearmint than peppermint. You can get mint tea in bags, or loose tea. I LOVE loose tea. In fact, I am sort of a tea addict!
DAVIDsTEA is my FAVOURITE tea store. When I go in there, it is like a kid in a candy store. My tea cupboard at home is packed with little tins of deliciousness. Have you tried blackberry lemon tea pops?
You can create your own blend using whatever mint tea you like. Just steep some tea (I like to use double the amount so the tea is nice and strong), let it cool and add it to the watermelon juice. This watermelon drink recipe has a ratio of 1 part tea and 2 parts juice, but feel free to experiment and come up with your perfect combination.
Add ice, a few watermelon cubes for garnish (and eating) and ENJOY!! Watermelon Mint Refresher is the perfect watermelon cooler to enjoy all summer long.
