Watermelon Mint Juice

Watermelon is code for heaven, in my book. Sweet, juicy, full of antioxidants, hydrating power, free-radical fighters, and Viagara-like effects. What more can you ask from a fruit? This beverage is inspired by a drink that is served in a vegan chain restaurant called Native Foods. They use agave syrup, but if you get a super duper perfect watermelon, you would have to be crazy to add sweetner!

Watermelon Mint Juice

Flesh of a watermelon (blender full)
1-2 leaves of mint (depending on how feisty you are feeling)
Water (to taste, it's nice for thinning it out-optional)
Coconut sugar (to taste-optional)

Blend the watermelon and mint leaves. Pour into container and add optional ingredients if adding at all. Use other mint leaves for garnish if you are entertaining or just wanna be sassy.

If you have a monster of a blender (like my beloved Blendtec), you can freeze watermelon flesh first, then blend for a CRAZY refreshing drink. Adding boba can be a blast too for a chewy treat.


  1. You can freeze the juice too for a yummy popsicle delight!

  2. Sounds amazing yet again.

    Have you tried coconut syrup? I enjoy it and used it in your almond milk, cocoa nib recipe. :) Worked like a charm!!
