Today I have for you the most refreshing summertime drink ever! It’s one of those drinks that I can’t stop drinking, which is a good thing because it is all natural, organic and simply amazing! It is my Cucumber and Watermelon Cooler!
I got this idea for my drink by all of the wonderful produce that I got from Farm fresh To You! I signed up for a monthly service to receive organic fruits and vegetables to be delivered to my front door. It saves me a trip to the grocery store and it inspires me to try out new recipes. Plus it helps that they supply recipes with my box of goodies and website. You can check out my Instagram picture with all of the goodies I got from my box.
I got so much wonderful produce! I got ASSORTED LETTUCE, BI-COLOR CORN, DAPPLE FIRE PLUOT, MINI SEEDLESS WATERMELON, MIXED HEIRLOOM TOMATOES,PURPLE BELL PEPPERS, RED GRAPES,RUBY GRAPEFRUITS, SLICING CUCUMBER, VALENCIA ORANGES, YELLOW FINN POTATOES, YELLOW ONIONS, YELLOW PEACHES, and ZUCCHINI. So much wonderful produce in just one box! Here are all of my beautiful vegetables.
I didn’t get a chance to eat everything because I was going to Pennsylvania a couple of days later, but my Husband told me he enjoyed all of the fresh produce. He told me he made mashed potatoes with the Yellow Finn Potatoes, served with a side of steak. I asked; did you take a picture? He looked at me and said no! He also ate all of the peaches, and grapes. Lucky for me he left me the cucumber and watermelon! The day the package arrived we did eat the corn. It smelled so good and I couldn’t resist it. You can check out the photo of the corn here. Here is all of the beautiful fruit that we received. I love the photo, it looks like Fall to me.
As you can see why I was inspired by my produce for today’s recipe. If you checked out some of my recipes this week, you will see some of my produce from Farm Fresh To You in it. Now for my drink! Let me tell you this drink tastes amazing! It’s so light, fruity, naturally sweet and totally refreshes you on a hot summer day.
It’s made with 4 simple ingredients, seedless watermelon, cucumber, lime juice and honey. I didn’t have to add too much honey because the drink is naturally sweet. Plus what I love is that the produce I used from Farm Fresh To You is all organic. You couldn’t ask for a more natural drink.
