Watermelon Daiquiris

If you ask me, Watermelon is the quintessential summer fruit. So, I plan to use it anything I can think of this summer. Let’s be real most of us love watermelon because it’s refreshing and delicious. But, did you know it’s also really good for you? And not just because it helps hydrate you!

 

It’s also high in vitamins and nutrients. Just to name a few..Potassium, Lycopene, & Vitamin C. Some of my favorites, they help with all sorts of things:

Vitamin C – Also found in Guava, Red Peppers, Kale, Oranges,etc. It can help naturally slow aging, and promotes healthy skin, improves mineral absorption, and fights off colds & flus.

Lycopene – It’s one of the most powerful antioxidants. It’s commonly found in Tomatoes and Carrots. It’s good for your skin & bones. It can help with prostate issues, helps keep your brain healthy, and improves your heart health! It can also help prevent cancers and protect against free radicals.

Potassium – It acts as an electrolyte and helps improve overall health. It can help boost metabolism, stimulate neural activity, and boosts heart health! In addition to watermelon, it can be found in Avocados, Spinach, Bananas, and so much more!

 

I know, as if you needed another reason to consume ‘all the watermelon’ this summer. It’s always nice to know though, and the first thing on my list are these Juicy Watermelon Daiquiris.

They are composed of fresh Watermelon, Lime Juice, and Captain Morgan Watermelon Smash Rum. Have you had Captain Morgan Watermelon Smash Rum? It’s so delicious. If you like rum and fruit centric drinks, then its a must. I would guess it’s also amazing chilled as a shot. Since I get up at like 7 am every morning with my little one though, that is just a guess ;).. I do know it’s really good in lemonade as well, but I’ll save the Watermelon Lemonade Smash recipe for another day!

Composing the Watermelon Daiquiris

You’ll want to start with 1/4 of a seedless watermelon. Remove it from the rind. Place it in the blender . After you blend it once , try to get rid of some of the pulp, by holding a strainer over a large bowl. Carefully pour your pureed watermelon into the bowl. This should seperate the little bit of pulp and any white seeds that might still be present. Next, freeze the puree for a few hours until it’s just slightly on the verge of solid, still slushy. Remove it from the freezer and add it to the blender. Add your Rum, Lime Juice, and Brown Sugar. Add about a cup of ice. Blend until smooth and get ready to enjoy!
