Watermelon Breeze Recipe | Watermelon Drink with Coconut Water | Watermelon Recipes
Summer can be extremely uncomfortable, especially in places like India. That is when nature's gifts come to our rescue.  Watermelon and Coconut  water are a boon during such times. In India the roadside would be filled with vendors carrying tender coconut. They would slice and put a straw in it for you to enjoy the coconut water. My mother would take a container, ask the vendor to fill it with coconut water and then place it in the fridge.

That chilled coconut water would then be enjoyed by us. Oh my, how refreshed did we feel then! I used to say, that the nectar in our mythological stories, probably tasted likewise. Such was its impact on us, during  the humid summer. This drink combines both these awesome cooling ingredients together to make an extremely refreshing drink.

Watermelon being naturally sweet, this makes for a healthiest and nourishing drink for all the family members. Depending on your taste, you can adjust the ingredients to make a blend of your favorite drink. 
  • Cook time:
  • Prep time:
  • Serves: 4 people
  • Yields: Good for 2-4 people
Ingredients
  • 16 Oz (abt 450 grams) cubed chilled Watermelon, see Tips
  • 1 cup Coconut Water, or to taste
  • 1 large Lemon, or to taste
  • Ice cubes, as needed
  • Fresh Mint to garnish
Tips
1. Watermelon: All the amounts mentioned above will vary depending upon the quality and taste of your ingredients and your taste preferences. For this particular recipe, I have used half a mini watermelon (seedless) which was incredibly sweet. Hence needed no additional sweetener.
Method
1. Add all the ingredients together in a blender. If your watermelon is really sweet, like mine was, adding a generous amount of freshly squeezed lemon enhances the taste. If you like taste of coconut, add more coconut water to this.
2. Blend until smooth and serve garnished with mint. I add some mint to the pitcher as well so that the aroma of mint gets incorporated to the drink.
Perfect drink for your summer.
