I’ll admit, I made this mostly just for fun. I had half a watermelon, an ever-growing mint plant, and it was a beautiful hot day. So. Refreshing.
A juicer is really not necessary to make this, and unless you don’t use a centrifugal juicer, I’d recommend not using a juicer. A blender, a nutribullet, or even a hand mixer, will all do the trick. I’m thankful I thought, last minute, to throw on an apron “just in case.” The explosion of watermelon that followed was as funny as it was messy. Lesson learned!
I bought a strain of mint called Strawberry Mint, and it has the sweetest, loveliest scent and taste. I thought it would make great mojitos, but I see myself using it in lots of juices this summer as well.
- 1/2 a watermelon
- a couple sprigs of mint
- optional: vodka 😉
No real instructions here. Blend on a hot summer day, and enjoy!
