Today i am going to show you three different recipes with just one fruit & that’s Watermelon 🍉! It’s so loved in my family and i am sure in all of your home’s too. The juicy slushy fruit is found in every home all around Summer without a doubt. So, get your melons on the counter, some mint leaves, lemon juice, soda, a pinch of salt, sugar is optional and that’s it. We are good to GO!

Let‘s get started with the easy one -

Recipe Notes

  • For the watermelon juice if your melon is sweet I suggest don’t add sugar. I like to enjoy the natural taste of the fruits.

  • For the Mojito, if your tastebuds don’t like the minty flavor you can cut down that to half for just a subtle flavor.

  • For the Slushy, I skipped the mint here, but you can add it and it’s refreshing and cooling to have fresh herbs init.
