What you’ll need:
- 1/2 of a large watermelon
- 1/2 tsp of Yourlixir Activated Charcoal
- 4-6 fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 of a lime **optional
Directions: Scoop watermelon out of the rind into a blender and puree until the chunks are gone. (*Bonus points for chilling your watermelon before blending.) We prefer to strain our watermelon juice once or twice to get any seeds or pulp out. Once your juice has been strained, add Yourlixir Activated Charcoal and blend well. Next, squeeze half of a lime into your cooler for a tart kick in the glass. Chill in the fridge and serve over ice. Take a couple of mint leaves and give them a firm slap between your hands to release the aromatic oils and garnish your gloriously crafted Pink Panther Cooler for you and a friend.
*To preserve the flavor and freshness, store in a sealed glass container (preferably a mason jar) in the fridge. However, it is best to consume your drinks right away to receive the most health benefits.
**Activated charcoal does its job so well that it can interfere with certain medications, nutrients or supplements, so make sure to drink it at least two hours prior to eating, or taking any supplements/medications, or contact your doctor if you are unsure of any possible reactions.
