We were recently blessed with two large watermelons from the garden of a family friend. They are treat just cut up into chunks, but there’s only so many slices of watermelon you can eat, no matter how great they taste. With quite a bit of watermelon leftover, I did some searching and came up with some ideas for watermelon coolers. They make the perfect summer drink and all you need is a blender. I had already removed the rind and cut the watermelon into chunks. They were sitting in a covered bowl in the fridge waiting to be turned into yummy (and healthy) drinks.
- watermelon chunks (fill up your blender to the top)
- juice of half a lime
- sugar to taste
- Fill your blender to the top with watermelon chunks. As you start blending, feel free to add a few more if your blender can hold more. Add the lime juice and sugar and blend until liquefied. I start with a teaspoon of sugar and add more if needed.

Serve the coolers right away, or store them in the fridge for a day. If you have leftovers, freeze them in ice cube trays and use them to add a little flavor to plain water.
