Watermelon Cooler

Another watermelon recipe! Because it’s that time of year…and I made good use of the watermelon we had! 😉 We recently had a really hot spell, and this watermelon cooler was the perfect drink during that week. It’s cool, refreshing and quick and easy to blend up!

This drink blends juicy watermelon with tart lemon, using a little bit of lemon sorbet for sweetness and adding a bit of slushiness to the texture as well. This was inspired by a Paula Deen recipe I found a while back. I liked that it used lemon sorbet, instead of just lemon & sugar.

This drink does have some texture to it…and it will vary, depending on how well you blend the watermelon and ice. For one batch I made, I strained it through a sieve after blending, and my boys preferred that smooth, more juice like drink. But I think it’s great as is, right from the blender!

If you’re into watermelon drinks, be sure to try our watermelon mojito mocktail!
