Pineapple Watermelon Cooler

Make sure to pin this Pineapple Watermelon Cooler recipe for the next time that you need an easy and delicious refreshing drink!

Listen… summer isn’t over yet and I’m going to drag it out as long as I can! This Pineapple Watermelon Cooler recipe really helps. It’s delicious and SO refreshing, and surprisingly very easy to make.

It’s healthy too! Pineapple is high in vitamin C and the enzyme Bromelain, which is great for digestion. Watermelon is high in several vitamins and minerals and actually has more Lycopene than tomatoes!

Pineapple Watermelon Cooler
(makes two 12-ounce servings)

Make sure to pin this Pineapple Watermelon Cooler recipe for the next time that you need an easy and delicious refreshing drink!

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups ripe watermelon, chopped
1 1/2 cups frozen pineapple chunks, chopped
1 cup watermelon juice (see notes below)
Juice of 1 lemon

This delicious watermelon and pineapple cooler is a wonderful summer treat!

Use a strainer to add the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

All of your favorite ingredients in one drink? Yes please! This Watermelon Pineapple drink is amazing!

Store in the refrigerator for up to three days. Shake well before serving.

Additional thoughts: Anytime I buy a watermelon, I cut the whole thing up and keep in the refrigerator. As it sits, a LOT of juice accumulates, which is what I used in this recipe. If you don’t have that, you could add some coconut water instead.

If your fruit is ripe enough, you shouldn’t need any sweetener. If you do, any sweetener of your choice will work.

If you don’t have frozen fruit, you can add some ice to the blender to make it nice and cold. Garnish with a lemon twist (optional) and enjoy!
