Watermelon + coconut water = the most refreshing combination ever! This summer I have been seeking out all kinds of refreshing beverages because of the sweltering heat in Illinois. Luckily I stumbled across an article on Lauren Conrad’s website that clued me in on watermelon coconut water! Not only is it mega refreshing, it is also good for you! Here is how you can whip yourself up a batch.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cubed chilled watermelon
  • 1 cup coconut water400834_390257437749600_1431811470_n
  • 1 large lemon
  • Ice cubes

Add all the ingredients together in a blender. If your watermelon is really sweet, adding a generous amount of freshly squeezed lemon boosts the flavor! If you like taste of coconut, add more coconut water to this. Blend all of the ingredients until smooth. Take a sip and see what you think! I adjusted the recipe a bit to fit the sweetness of my watermelon, and you may need to as well.

 

This drink has a beachy flare to it, so if you are craving a day at the beach but live nowhere near one, then this delicious delicacy will make you think you are somewhere with your toes in the sand. 😉

XOXO, Chels

Was one of your New Year’s resolutions to give up soda or sweet drinks? Or, do you get tired of dull old water? Well fear not, because I have the perfect savory drink to satisfy your sweet tooth. I introduce to you, naturally flavored water! This drink is great to take with you on the go or just to sip on at home! It basically has zero calories, but a boatload of flavor! Here are a few of my favorite recipes:

– Raspberry Lime Flavored Water: Cut 2 limes into 4 pieces each. Squeeze the juice from the limes into the jar, and then throw the squeezed limes into the jar. Add raspberries. Take a wooden spoon and press on the fruit to release some of the juices, but don’t totally pulverize the fruit. Fill the jar with ice and then fill water to the top. Stir the mixture, cover, and refrigerate.

– Watermelon Rosemary Flavored Water: Add a sprig of rosemary to the jar and press it with a wooden spoon to release some of its flavor. Cube a watermelon and add the cubes. Press gently on the cubes with a wooden spoon to release the juices. Fill your jar with ice cubes, add water to the top and stir. Cover the mixture and refrigerate.

Let your mixtures sit in the fridge for about 24 hours to let the flavors mix into the water. Then, enjoy! The mixture in the picture is blackberries and lime! Yummy!

XOXO, Chels
