I hear summer and I think of watermelons! Red, juicy and cold watermelon pieces by the pool! Oh the dream!
Although where I live it is summer all the year round (ugh! how much I miss the seasons!), so I can very well do with a glass of the cool drink almost everyday after running errands in the heat and sweat!
I keep trying out easy fun recipes which can be made in a jiffy and with the things readily available, so here I am sharing a super easy Watermelon Quencher, which is not only very refreshing but also one of the prettiest pink drink I have seen!
It is an exciting spin on our favourite summer lemonade, which will be a great hit for summer parties, barbecues, or even when relaxing in pyjamas with Netflix on.
Things I needed to make this tangy, sweet and minty punch:
- 2 cups of watermelon pieces
- 1 cup pineapple pieces
- few sprigs of mint leaves
- 1 lime (add more depending on the tartness)
- sugar syrup – optional (sugar content will be as per your liking and also how sweet the fruits are)
- Lots of ice!
Gave all the ingredients a good churn in the blender for a minute. Strained the drink (optional).
The proportion is good to serve one and one’s bestie.
Before straining- it’s loaded with fibre
The coolest thing about this drink is it can be varied in so many ways: add booze of your choice for the weekends and the parties, pineapples can easily be substituted with kiwis, grapefruits, ginger – or whatever is available in the fridge, sparkling water can be added for fizz.
