Just in time for the hottest dog days of summer, I have the most refreshing, easy breezy cool down drink for you.  I hardly feel like I can call this Strawberry Watermelon Cooler a “recipe” because it is so simple, but it is so delicious that it is definitely worth sharing with you.

Watermelon is hands down one of my favorite parts of summer.  I always have a tub of cut up melon in my fridge and it is the best way to quench my thirst and cool down after a workout or satisfy my hunger while I finish dinner.  I’ve told you a million times how much of a texture eater I am and that juicy light crunch of watermelon is pretty much what my dreams are made of.

As if the taste of this Strawberry Watermelon Cooler wasn’t reason enough to make it daily, it is basically like sneaking in several servings of fruit without even noticing.  Watermelon is receiving more and more praise for being one of the fruits that is highest in lycopene which is an antioxidant which helps to fight numerous diseases.  I was also surprised to recently learn how high in vitamin C watermelon is.  I think of citrus fruits instantly when I think of vitamin C, but watermelon is one of the fruits that has a very high amount of this immune-boosting vitamin as well.

Have I mentioned that there is NO added sugar in this Strawberry Watermelon Cooler??  But you’d never know it by how sweet and tasty it is.  The watermelon and strawberries are sweet enough to shine on their own which is a bonus because I try to avoid sugary overly-sweetened drinks.
