My preferred method for this smoothie is to freeze the watermelon and cucumber then add a little water to get everything going in the blender. But if you’re short on time and don’t want to wait for it to freeze, you can also add a few ice cubes with a splash of water. Either way, it’s so simple to make!

The best part is that the combination is perfectly sweet without the need for any added sugars. Between the mint and the cucumber, you can instantly feel the cooling effect it has on the body. It tastes just as good as it feels to drink. If you’ve been feeling the heat and are in need of hydration then I highly recommend drinking one of these. Cheers!
