- Frozen watermelon and strawberries
The foundation of any fantastic smoothie is frozen fruit, and today’s drink is no exception.
The primary ingredient, watermelon, offers a plethora of mixing and matching possibilities. It complements a wide variety of fruits, including strawberries, bananas, and tropical fruits like mango and pineapple.
Strawberry is our choice to pair with watermelon in today’s recipe. We love that its flavor is complementary and not overpowering. The mildly sweet, citrusy taste of strawberries allows the watermelon’s pure flavor to shine through beautifully.
That being said, please feel free to add other fruits of your liking if preferred. The more frozen fruit you incorporate into the smoothie, the thicker it will be.
- Lime juice and coconut water: Coconut water provides the utmost refreshment, while lime juice adds a lovely tangy note.
- Sugar, ice, and mint:
Without a sweetener, watermelon and strawberries can be a bit tasteless in smoothies. You can use any type of sweetener you desire, including sugar, honey, and simple syrup. The amount you use should depend on the ripeness of the fruits.
Last but not least, ice cubes are included to make it extra frosty alongside frozen fruits, and the mint leaves are added to amp up the cooling feeling.

How Long Does Watermelon Mojito Last?
- In the fridge:
Watermelon mojito smoothie can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 1 day after being blended. Storing it in an airtight jar is the best approach to ensure it stays fresh for as long as possible.
Because homemade fruit juices are not pasteurized, they have a relatively short shelf life. They lose nutrients quicker over time and maintain nutrients better at lower temperatures.
Keeping it in an airtight container is the best approach to prevent it from coming into contact with air. Because oxygen causes browning in fruit juices and smoothies, it must be restricted.
- In the freezer:
Put your blended smoothie in sealed freezer-safe jars or containers and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Allow for thawing in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
When putting it to freeze, remember to leave about an inch of room at the top for expansion.
You can keep it in popsicle molds for a more enjoyable experience. Simply freeze it and serve it at a party or as a refreshing summer beverage for children!
