Watermelon Cooler

If you haven’t noticed, I love Coconut La Croix. It is the ultimate summer drink, although I definitely drink it year round. Just last week we posted this Cantaloupe Drink, using Coconut La Croix of course, and now we are switching melons. Watermelon!

Fruity drinks are one of my favorite things about summer. They are refreshing and sweet and so easy to make! Generally when I think of fruity drinks, I tend to think of berries or citrus. But watermelon is a great option too! AND quintessential summer. For sure. This Watermelon Cooler was ready to drink in less than 10 minutes and we all loved it!
