After the massive mega marathon of Biryani / Pulao / khichadis, we are back to the regular marathons. My theme for this week is Summer Coolers which is just perfect for this scorching heat I am being subject to. If the Bangalore heat was not enough, I had to make a trip to Chennai and Kumbakonam, which are way worse. These amazing summer cooler drinks are my only source of respite.
This watermelon mint cooler is a simple and easy drink and can be made quickly. The daughter does not like to eat watermelons and I have a hard time making her eat more than 2 small slices. I figured it is easier making her drink it and she has loved this version of the watermelon immensely.
WHAT WE NEED
1/2 Watermelon (around 500gms)
1 sprig fresh mint
2-3 tsp Sugar
WHAT TO DO
- Separate the watermelon flesh from the rind
- Add the watermelon, fresh mint and sugar to a blender jar
- Blend it all together in the blender
- Use a sieve to separate the juice and chill
- Serve chilled
