This watermelon juice with mint is such a refreshing drink for the summer. It’s easy to make and you only need a couple ingredients. While I love watermelon, sometimes they’re too big to eat the whole thing, so you need to get creative with how to use the rest. That’s where this recipe comes in!

If you’re looking for other non-alcoholic drinks perfect for summer check out my Blueberry Lavender Lemonade or my Spicy Pineapple Mocktail.

Why you’ll love this watermelon juice with mint

  • Refreshing: watermelon in its original form is very refreshing, so it makes sense it would be even more refreshing once it’s juiced.
  • Easy to make: takes only a couple ingredients, and a blender!
  • Healthy: some store-bought juices can be very high in sugar. The nice thing about this juice is it’s naturally sweetened by the watermelon, and the mint adds some additional flavour.
