- 4 cups of cubed watermelon (freeze ahead)
- 1 romaine heart, chopped
- 3/4 cup of coconut water or filtered water. If adding vodka, only use 1/4 cup of coconut/water to start.
- the juice from one lemon
- a couple sprigs of fresh mint (leaves only)
- Optional: 4 ounces of vodka — give or take, depending on how strong you like your drinks.
Prepare the watermelon — wash the melon well and dry. Cut into big slices, and then into cubes, discarding the rind. Place the watermelon into a ziploc bag or airtight container, arranging the watermelon in a single layer. Freeze for several hours or overnight (or while you're at work).
Place the frozen watermelon cubes, romaine, coconut water (or water), lemon juice, mint leaves and vodka (if using) into a high speed blender. Process until slushy, adding a small amount of water to reach desired consistency.
Garnish and serve — salud!
