An easy, refreshing watermelon cooler that even the kids will love. Uses watermelon, lime, and mint to create a healthy alcohol-free drink.
This refreshing watermelon cooler is the perfect summer thirst quencher.
For me, when I think of summer fruits, watermelon and mango are the 2 that come to mind immediately. I remember my childhood, eating big wedges of watermelon while the juice ran down my arm and dripped off my elbows onto the hot pavement.
For this reason, I've created a few watermelon mocktails to be enjoyed during the warmer weather.

There is a sparkling and non sparkling option for this alcohol free drink, just follow the instructions below. Personally I think the sparking version is a little more 'mocktail' than the non sparkling, but they are both delicious.
I recommend a high speed blender for this recipe. If you don't have one, make sure you give it a really good blend on the highest setting.
If you have little ones, make sure to add it to your list of mocktails for kids - my kiddies love this one! It's a great way to both hydrate and get some fruit into them.
