There’s no running from it…it’s a scorcher out there today!

Cool down with this refreshing beverage!

This deliciousness can also be used to fight bloat and slim down your mid-section!

Mint:  Used to soothe tummy troubles, relieve gas and aid in digestion.

Watermelon:  Consists mostly of water making it super hydrating and it’s a natural diuretic.

Lemon & Lime: A natural diuretic and detoxifier, plus citrus fruits are high in immune boosting antioxidants.

I used frozen watermelon, but you can use fresh-cut watermelon and ice instead. Watermelon has been on sale lately and I’m taking full advantage of it!  I’ve been buying and freezing fresh seasonal fruit just for occasions like this!

Instructions

  • Place frozen watermelon, coconut water, lemon juice, agave syrup and mint leaves in a high-speed blender and blend until slushy. Add more liquid if needed. (I used a vita-mix and set it on the “frozen dessert” mode)

Nojito is a non-alcoholic mojito, but I wouldn’t be mad at ya if you added a little rum or vodka to the mix!
A festive cocktail for the holiday weekend, cheers 🙂
