A refreshing, light summer drink.


  • 1 small watermelon (about 1600g | 1 1/2 pounds)
  • juice from 1 lime (about 3 TBSPS + more to taste)
  • 480ml (2 cups) coconut water
  • 13 tablespoons light agave syrup (nectar)

Serve with

  • lime slices
  • mint leaves
  • watermelon balls


  1. Cut the watermelon in half and first make a few watermelon balls with a melon baller (about 10). Put in an airtight container and place in the freezer. Peel the leftover watermelon, chop it in small pieces.
  2. Transfer watermelon to a blender, add lime juice and 120ml (1/2 cup) coconut water. Blend until completely pureed and smooth. Taste and add as much agave syrup as you wish, depending on the sweetness of the watermelon.
  3. Strain into a pitcher, using a fine mesh sieve. Add remaining coconut water and stir well.
  4. Serve over ice, add a few mint leaves and lime slices, top off with 1-2 frozen watermelon balls.


You can make this ahead. Store it in an airtight container in the fridge and drink within a day.
