Foodie Friday

The days have been getting warmer and it’s a nice reminder that summer is almost here! You’re probably looking forward to patio time, barbecues and cool treats. While we can’t get you the first two, we do have a recipe from the Thug Kitchen Cookbook that may satisfy your cravings for something icy and refreshing. You’ll even benefit from all the awesome health properties of Hibiscus that we talked about earlier in the week.

  • 6 cups of cubed watermelon (ideally seedless)
  • 1 1/2 cups of brewed hibiscus tea, cooled
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons of agave nectar or your preferred liquid sweetener


Freeze your watermelon for at least an hour. When it’s nice and frozen, grab your blender and fill it with the watermelon, along with the rest of the ingredients. Blend until smooth. Give it a taste, and add more sweetener if that’s what you prefer. Enjoy your cool, refreshing Watermelon Hibiscus Coolers!
