Watermelon Mint Cooler, Drink for Summer

Watermelon Mint Cooler

Watermelon Mint Cooler Recipe to keep you calm in this scorching heat. This is also known as Watermelon Agua Fresca.

Watermelon has always been my favourite fruit in summer. My mother used to slice it and keep it in refrigerator for at least 2 hours and then we would all eat the chilled slices of watermelon. It was refreshing. Having those chilled watermelon pieces – I would keep a big chunk for the last – in summers during childhood days is still fresh!

I would wait for summers to come so that I can have watermelons. Memories! These days one can easily get this fruit throughout the year. But I miss those days when I used to eagerly wait for a fruit season, be it mangoes or melons. Today’s kids might not understand this! I’m still not too old πŸ˜€

How to Make Watermelon Mint Cooler Juice or Agua Fresca

Here is how to make the watermelon mint juice recipe. Watermelon Mint Cooler Recipe has the main ingredient as sliced watermelon, mint leaves, cumin powder and salt. Watermelon, cumin and mint – all have a cooling effect on your body. This cool drink prevents you from the heat strokes during summer too.

Well I liked the name Agua Fresca but to keep it simple I’m calling it Watermelon Mint Cooler.

Time taken: 15 minutes, maximum; Serves – 4-5 people

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Watermelon (medium sized)
  • 12-15 Mint leaves
  • 1 tsp rock salt or plain salt
  • 8-10 Ice cubes
  • 1/2 glass Cold water
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Lemon juice
  • 2 pinches of cumin powder

Method

Slice and cut the watermelon in to small pieces. Try to deseed as much as you can.

Now put the watermelon pieces into the juicer jar; add mint leaves, lemon juice, sugar, salt, 4 ice cubes, cumin powder and blend it till a smooth juice. Now add the rest of the ice cubes and blend again for 40 seconds.

Take a bowl, place a strainer over it and pour the watermelon juice. Strain this juice, so that seeds (if any) would get filtered. Check the consistency of the juice. If it is too thick add water for a juice consistency.

Pour the watermelon mint cooler in the glasses, garnish with mint leaves and serve.

Have this refreshing watermelon mint cooler or watermelon agua fresca with this recipe, and let us know how you liked it.

    Watermelon also has many good childhood memories for me – we used to have a watermelon party every Christmas eve. We could invite all our friends, neighbours and cousins. It was a big backyard party and loads of fun – maybe watermelon is a healer?
