Watermelon Mint Cooler

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.

Serves 3-4

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
  • ┬áServe chilled
  • Enjoy!

    Watermelon is perfect for the hot summer weather. I love the juice too, but thankfully my son loves to eat it as such so I am saved from taking out the mixer :-D.

    Watermelon is really cooling in summers. I am lazy to make juice so most of the time end up eating pieces..

    I agree watermelon serves as a thirst quencher in the summer months. My kids love the watermelon lemonade and so I am sure they will appreciate this one as well.

    My kids love most things with watermelon in its whole form – from the chilled melon ball salad to the whole fruit. Addition of mint is such a lovely idea ! Kumbakonam in this heat – god bless u (or did u go there to visit mr Uppiliappan ? ­čśť)

  6. Heat at Madurai is quite unbearable. This cooler looks fantastic and would be a perfect drink to keep us cool. The mint would add a nice savoury note to the cooler.

    Simpl , refreshing and delicious summer treat. I’m like your daughter – I’d rather drink watermelon than eat it. Looks very inviting.
