Summer Drinks: Watermelon Mocktail

Watermelon

I needed a change from my morning smoothie and juicing recipes so today I decided to mix up a few summertime ingredients for a refreshing morning drink. The star of the show is watermelon. It’s that time of year. Then I added a little spice. I don’t know why other than I just felt like it. The results: Delicious and surprisingly filling.

Summer Watermelon  Mocktail

 

Confession: While making this my mind kept saying:
“This would be a great cocktail”
“Let me grab some rum, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere”
“Ok fine no rum but sprite would make this so good”

Yes I am a little crazy. I ended up sticking to the original plan but I will definitely be trying this recipe with a little mommy juice, soda, or sparkling water. The possibilities are endless.
