Blended Watermelon Juice With Mint Tea
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.
This refreshing summer drink is a combination of mint tea and fresh watermelon juice. No added sugar.
2 INGREDIENTS are all you need!
I just use my blender on the “liquify” cycle, put in pieces of watermelon, and in a few seconds, I have pure 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.
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. My tea cupboard at home is packed with little tins of deliciousness.
Have you tried lemon tea and blackberry popsicles? A fun and healthy treat for hot summer days. Matcha cupcakes are sweet, earthy, and super easy to make with the help of a cake mix. No baking from scratch is needed.
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 crushed watermelon juice.
This summer 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.
