Watermelon & Cucumber Cooler

Must Try

I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

Does it feel like summer where you live?

Watermelon & Cucumber Cooler

The really hot weather has yet to descend upon New England for the season, but this Memorial Day weekend is actually forecast to be pretty warm. After what feels like day after day of cool rainy days, I’m welcoming the sunshine with open arms and this refreshing cooler is the perfect way to ring in the unofficial start of summer.

Watermelon & Cucumber Cooler

Simply a strained puree of sweet juicy watermelon and crisp cool cucumber, this agua fresca-like beverage  is an ideal antidote to a hot day.

Watermelon & Cucumber Cooler

Watermelon is a staple in my summertime diet, and apparently I’ve started early this year because I can’t seem to get enough of the delicious fruit. I can easily put away a few big bowlfuls of chopped watermelon in one sitting… I mean it is mainly water, right?!

Watermelon & Cucumber Cooler

Feel free to play around with the ratio of watermelon to cucumber to suit your taste preference. Regardless, I hope you find this cooler as delicious and refreshing as I do!
