Prep time 20 mins
Yield Makes 3 1/2 cups
Cucumber water is a refresher at many spas. Relax with our jazzed-up version that includes fresh melon and mint.

Ingredients

  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 cups seedless watermelon cubes
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups ice cubes

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a blender, and process until smooth. Strain mixture through a fine wire-mesh sieve placed over a bowl, pressing solids with a wooden spoon to extract liquid. Discard solids.

  2. Combine ice cubes and watermelon mixture in a blender, and process until smooth and slushy. Serve immediately.
