Cucumber Watermelon Cooler

by Valerie on May 10, 2009 · 4 comments

Yesterday was super warm, so a perfect day to try a Cucumber Watermelon Cooler recipe Husband bookmarked on the internet a few days ago. Isn’t it wonderfully pink? I absolutely loved the combination of watermelon, black pepper and cucumber. And the recipe is so very easy, you could even add it to your Mother’s Day celebration today – it requires just three ingredients. Happy Mother’s Day!

Cucumber Watermelon Cooler
Serves 2
Bookmarked at My Spicy Kitchen


2 cups Watermelon pieces
1 cup Cucumber peeled & dice
Pinch of Black Pepper

Blend all the ingredients in a blender. Strain the mixture thru a strainer. Add some ice cubes to a serving glass and pour the juice.

We made these twice yesterday, and the second time we were lazy and did not strain or serve over ice cubes, and it was just as delicious – though a slightly less elegant presentation.

Mmmm…watermelon is one of my all time favourite foods, and I can just imagine how refreshing this must have been! I’ll have to be sure to give this a try the next time I have people over for a BBQ!
