It’a hot here in Texas. Just like every other summer. So we’ve been trying every possible thing to stay cool. Trips to the pool, staying in air conditioning, and cool drinks.
We wound up getting a small seedless watermelon for snacks for our daughter, but baby’s not gonna eat a whole watermelon by herself, no matter how small it is. So I cut up a bit to turn into this watermelon cucumber cooler. And I’m so glad I did! It was so refreshing and healthy. Tasted like summer. Reminded me of a cocktail without alcohol. Of course, you could always add a splash of rum, tequila, or vodka if that’s what you’re craving.
It’s so easy to make too. Just throw some cubed watermelon, some peeled and cubed cucumber and a sprinkle of salt in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour over ice cubes, top with sparkling water and enjoy!
