Summer Mocktails are a Thing of Beauty-So Drink Up!

This summer I’m all about  mocktails.  Alcohol dehydrates your skin and with two small toddlers I have no business imbibing.  I can hardly muster he energy to chase them around sober. So, instead of throwing back a 300 calorie G&T this summer I’ve been sipping a hydrating and antioxidant-fueled watermelon mocktail.  It’s simple, full of flavor and free of hangover regret.  Recipe is below.  Yummy!

Watermelon Slush Smoothie Mocktails


  • 1 small watermelon
  • 2 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk
  • Mint sprigs


Cut the watermelon into small chunks and freeze overnight. When fully frozen, blend the icy watermelon pieces and the almond milk in a blender until smooth. Pour into a glass and garnish with a few sprigs of mint. Enjoy!

Added bonus – my kiddos can safely sip these while we enjoy the sunny Seattle summer.
