Many of you may not know this, but I am a HUGE fan of Thug Kitchen. I find their recipes delicious, and their offensive language commentary, hilarious. Recently, I came across their Watermelon Cucumber Slushie Recipe, and I thought that would make a perfect Weight Watchers Summer Drink Recipe. I also needed a good, alcohol-free drink recipe for my Labor Day BBQ that both adults and kids would enjoy, and so I got to work giving these a try. They were FANTASTIC!! They were cold, sweet, delightfully flavorful, and just 2 Points each. I barely even made any tweaks to Thug Kitchen’s original recipe. If you don’t want to use coconut water, plain old water will work just fine too. And if you prefer an adult version of this, white rum is a great replacement for the coconut water. This is a delicious and unique drink recipe that is a perfect summer treat, so while we still have these last few days of summer, get out that blender and whip up one of these Watermelon Cucumber Mint Refreshers – they are divine.
