Watermelon Mint Refresher


  • 8 cups diced watermelon, about 1/2 of a medium watermelon
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves, packed
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (for me, this was about 1 1/2 large limes)
  • Watermelon flavored sparkling water (If you can’t find watermelon, another flavor like lemon or lime would work. Plain would be fine too, it would just add less flavor!)


  1. Add the watermelon, lime, and mint to a blender and blend until totally liquefied and smooth
  2. Strain the juice into a pitcher through a fine mesh sieve. I like to pour some in and then scrape back and forth against the sieve with a large spoon to make the process faster
  3. To serve, fill a cup with ice and pour the watermelon juice almost to the top, about 3/4 or more, and then add a large splash of watermelon sparkling water on top!
  4. If you want to be fancy, you can garnish with lime slices and mint leaves :)


You don’t have to add the sparkling water, but it brings a nice fizz to the drink, which I love!

You also don’t have to strain it, but the final product will be a little thicker and pulpier if you don’t. But if you want to save extra time, skip the strain!

If you are using a smaller blender for this (like a magic bullet), you will need to work in batches.
