Watermelon-Mint Mojito Recipe | Non-Alcoholic Mojito Recipe - Better Nutrition
This refreshing, super-hydrating beverage is perfect for replenishing potassium on the hottest of summer days. And it's super easy to make!

For a colder, slushier beverage, scoop out watermelon balls, spread on a baking sheet and freeze for 1 to 2 hours before proceeding with recipe. For even more potassium (and a festive look), serve with coconut water ice cubes: pour coconut water into ice cube trays, add lime twists to each compartment, and freeze till solid.
