Step 1

Cut the watermelon in half, leaving the top and bottom intact so you can pour the drink back into it later.

Step 2

Scoop out the watermelon pulp of one half, and put it in a blender.

Step 3

Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender, and blend for 30-60 seconds or until smooth.

#SpoonTip: Use any leftover mint leaves to make fresh mint tea by pouring hot water over them in a mug. 

Step 4

Pour your drink back into the hollowed out watermelon, put some mint leaves on it, and pretend you’re on a beach.
