We are one week into summer break and it. is. HOT! I’m not sure why this summer feels hotter than most but we are literally melting. We spend 50% of our day outdoors playing in the summer sun, whether it’s in the back yard on the trampoline, at the park, in the mountains or biking around our neighborhood, when it’s time to come inside we’re sweaty, sticky and ready for a cold refreshing treat! This creamy coconut watermelon refresher is made with fresh watermelon, coconut water, fresh lime and our favorite Swell coconut ice cream. It’s the most delicious hydrating mocktail you will ever sip! Promise.
What is SWELL you ask?
Swell ice cream is the next wave of ice cream. It’s high protein, low glycemic, non GMO, gluten AND soy free, high in fiber, low in fat and only uses the highest quality of rBST and rBGH free milk. Did I miss anything? Oh and it tastes GOOD! Some better for you ice creams may have promising high protein ingredient lists but if it doesn’t actually taste like ice cream I’ve lost interest! Swell ice cream is the creamiest most delicious better for you ice cream I have ever tasted. Hands down. BEST.
Each pint is packed with 35 grams of protein, which is the equivalent to 6 eggs or 5oz of steak! That number stays consistent with all 10 flavors too! Yes I said TEN FLAVORS.

It fuels your body with the best for your bite nutrition and makes you feel even more powerful than you already are. So go ahead… DIG IN!!
Starting with this Creamy Coconut Watermelon Refresher
This recipe is so easy your kids can make it for you. So put your feet up, cool off and relax mama. You are welcome.
Simply blend all 5 ingredients in a high powered blender, strain pulp (optional) and ENJOY! I like to pour ours over ice or add it back into the blender with a few cubes after straining to make a slushie!
Either way it’s DELISH!
The addition of fresh lime adds a tart element that really awakens the senses. Both the watermelon and coconut water are great at restoring your body’s electrolyte balance without any added sugars or dyes and Swell ice cream adds a protein punch to top it all off!
Which means you’re left with all the benefits of a popular sugary sports drink but with all natural QUALITY ingredients you can feel good about!
A creamy, frothy, refreshing combo of better for you ingredients sure to make you have a little more pep in your step! So what are you waiting for?
Where can I buy SWELL?
