We are coming off a streak of seriously hot and humid weather. Or what the weather forecasters like to call “oppressive”. And what I like to call “frizzy hair and shiny, sweaty skin for everyone”.

You’re totally jealous, right?

Needless to say, staying cool and hydrated has been a major priority for me these past couple of days. So I’ve been sipping on these Watermelon Cucumber Coolers like it’s my job. Um…which it kind of is I guess.


People. Listen up. This drink has only four ingredients. FOUR! It doesn’t get much easier than that. All you need is some juicy watermelon (which I like to toss in my freezer for at least 30 minutes before blending it up to help keep this drink as cold as possible), cucumber, fresh ginger and Almond Breeze Almondmilk Original.


This Watermelon Cucumber Cooler is a serious thirst quencher, even on the hottest of days. And thanks to the Almond Breeze Almondmilk Original, it doesn’t feel all watered down. It has just enough body to it. Kind of like me. Ha!

OK, sorry. I’m really lame. So this is probably a good place to stop, before I get too carried away with my own silliness.

Stay cool, friends! And have a great weekend!

  • A perfect summer drink! This looks delish, Liz!


    • Thanks, Tori!

  • This sounds ALL sorts of refreshing! I love adding cucumber to my drinks…but watermelon too?! HELLO Summer sippage! Pinned!


    • Sip away!!

  • 4 ingredients including almond milk?! Very intrigued by the flavors here. . .love the creativity!! And this looks fabulous!


    • Thanks, Alice! I hope you try it out!

  • Haha, love your silly jokes! Also, almond milk is my life saver since going vegan, since I never liked real milk anyway. Watermelon always and all the way!


    • I’m glad someone likes my silly jokes! XO

  • You had me at 4 ingredients. I started swooning and neeeeeeding this after I read what the 4 ingredients were. These sound amazingly delish and refreshing! Love the addition of ginger! I’m totally going to be pouring myself a tall glass (or 4) of these today. Might as well sip on something fantastic while I rock frizzy hair and shiny, sweaty skin. Cheers, Liz- to staying cool ♡


    • Right? At least our drinks can be fabulous in this humid weather, even if our hair isn’t!

  • What a great way to finish out the week! This drink is perfect for weekend sipping and I love the combination of flavors- so refreshing! Happy Friday Liz!


    • Thanks, Allie! Let the weekend begin!

  • Lovin everything about this Summertime Sipper Liz! Throw that watermelon in the freezer! Delicious my dear!


    • Thanks, Traci! Stay cool, friend!

  • Four ingredients is good and all, but I’d go for five if it meant a splash of gin. Acceptible? 🙂


    • Totally! 🙂

  • Ugh same here. except I secretly kind of love it. Of course only when I don’t have to be outside longer than an hour. But if I have a body of water near by…bring it on! I can totally picture myself in a lounger sipping on one of these bad boys just taking it all in…


    • I like the way you think, Nicole!

  • This sounds really refreshing! I am a huge fan of watermelon. It is the best fruit for hot summer! Have a wonderful weekend to you as well!


    • Thanks, girlfriend!

  • I NEED THIS RIGHT NOW. It’s so hot out today, making this as soon as I get home. 🙂



    • It is SO hot. Ugh. Too hot for me. I need air-conditioning and a cold beverage!

  • You really know how to do weekends! Let’s be friends forever please 🙂


    • Oh we are totally going to be friends forever!

  • I could never cut it in humid weather. My hair would be a puff ball! Hope you’re staying cool. This drink sounds so refreshing! It’s 100 degrees today in California. I could realllly use this about now!


    • Eekk..that’s too hot for me! Go have yourself a cold drink! XO

  • Okay, so it’s not that hot over here, but I could SO use a few glasses of this right now! Four-ingredient heaven!


    • Definitely heavenly! 🙂

  • Four ingredients… Sold! I love the combo of watermelon and almond milk.


    • Thanks, girl! I hope you try it out!

  • Love, love, love this!!!


    • Thanks, girl!!

  • Am I sceptical?! Not at all! I’m super excited though because it’s watermelon! I’ve been having a kick recently on incorporating fruit in poultry and meat, but I would have never figured out to add watermelon. It sounds almost insane and fabulous at the same time!:) Awesome work, Liz!


    • Glad you love it, Ben! Let me know if you try it out!
