Love the fresh, summery sweetness of watermelon? Here’s a fast and incredibly easy recipe from Team RESTORE for a delicious new way to try this classic summer treat! Watermelon Fresca is a crowd-pleaser that will absolutely quench your thirst on a hot summer day.

Time: 5 minutes
Servings: varies, based on amount of watermelon used

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 watermelon
  • Ice cubes
  • Mint leaves (optional)

 

Team RESTORE recommends organic ingredients. If it’s labeled “organic,” that means the food is not genetically engineered or modified (“GMO”). If you are unable to source organic, we definitely recommend non-GMO. GMO foods are likely treated with herbicides, especially glyphosate, because they are engineered to resist it. (Glyphosate kills the weeds, but not the GMO crop.)

 

DIRECTIONS

First, chop watermelon into small chunks, cutting away the rind as you go. Add the chunks to your blender. Next, add in a few ice cubes. The amount of ice you add depends on your taste, so, start with a few cubes and add more if you like! Blend until ice is incorporated, and serve in your favorite glasses. For an added summery touch, add fresh mint leaves as garnish.

Above all, make sure to keep the blender out! Everyone will be clamoring for more fresca before you know it!
