Watermelon & Coconut Cooler

August 8, 2016

A Pinch of Bella - Watermelon & Coconut CoolerThere are so many reasons to look forward to Summer; lazy naps on the beach, cool evenings spent eating al fresco with friends & family, getting lost in a great book as your toes wiggle in the warm sand, messy salty hair, the general good vibes, and of course, the endless slices of irresistible watermelon. Refreshing, crisp & juicy, there’s nothing quite as satisfying on a hot afternoon.

After picking up the cutest little organic watermelon at our local market last weekend, I felt inspired to do something a little different. I combined the most refreshing ingredients I could think of; mint, watermelon, lime & fresh coconut water, creating this deliciously thirst-quenching drink. A Pinch of Bella - Watermelon & Coconut CoolerA Pinch of Bella - Watermelon & Coconut CoolerA Pinch of Bella - Watermelon & Coconut CoolerA Pinch of Bella - Watermelon & Coconut Cooler

1. Add all of the ingredients into a blender and blitz for about 30 seconds until smooth, making sure that the mint is finely chopped.
