Watermelon Cooler Recipe

by Clare Ward,

There's something about watermelon which just screams summer to us.  The bright colour, the juice of it running down your face when you bite into a slice.  It's a definite favourite for us. 

Not only is watermelon delicious but it contains vitamin C, betacarotene, and is a great source of lycopene. 

We love to make a Watermelon Cooler.  This refreshing drink never disappoints.


  • 1/4 watermelon diced
  • juice of half a lime
  • 2 stems of mint leaves
  • ice 
  • water/sparkling water - optional, to taste

Place the watermelon, lime juice and mint in a blender with some ice and blend it until it's smooth.  Check the flavour and consistency.  If it's too thick add some water or sparkling water and blend again.  If it's slightly too sweet then you could add some additional lime juice and blend again.  Once you've reached your desired consistency pour into a glass and enjoy!

Things we are loving - Radiance's June Edit

June Favourites - This is our round up of things we’ve been loving this last month. 

Seed probiotics - Seed probiotics are leading the way in the probiotics market. They are steeped in scientific research, in collaboration with leading scientists and research partners from around the world, they develop research-backed probiotics for outcomes across gastrointestinal, dermatological, oral, pediatric, and nutritional health. These have had the most profound effect on our gut health since we started taking them and highly recommend. 

Matilda Goad Brass Lampshade - As if we were already obsessed with all things Matilda Goad (we've been lusting after her ceramic clam shells for around 3 years now), along came her beautiful brass lampshades! These lampshades are made from brushed brass with slight natural markings and are lacquered to prevent any further wear. They are so unique and complete any room. 

Alexis Smart Flower Remedies - We were recently having a discussion here at Radiance HQ about the power of Flower Remedies. I had been skeptical in the past and failed to notice any shifts from prior attempts. Following on from that conversation I stumbled across Alexis Smart's bespoke blends. According to Alexis the key is matching you to the exact blend you require. After some very helpful communication with Alexis over instagram I settled on my chosen blend and wow! I can't recommend them highly enough. The only problem is her beautiful writing style makes you want to try all of them at once! 

Copper tongue Scraper - Many people suffer from a furry tongue while cleansing and this is actually a great sign your body is detoxing effectively! We love to make use of an Ayurvedic copper tongue scraper both when we are cleansing and when we're not! It's a great little tool to add to your dental hygiene routine to assist the body in eliminating toxins that have accumulated in the mouth. Copper tongue scrapers are also known for their antibacterial properties making it easy to remove toxins & prevent bacteria from growing on the scraper itself.

Remind classes - We have spoken about the transformative power of breathwork in an article (linked here) before but we struggled to find somewhere we could consistently practice it, without costing the earth. Re/mind studio in Fitzrovia is the answer to all our prayers. Not only do they offer breathwork but also beautiful sound baths and reiki too. Not to mention their gorgeous store packed with beautiful, thoughtfully chosen gifts and trinkets! 

Summer Solstice

by Olivia Cartwright, , link

We recently did a blog post on Mind, Body & Soul Cleanses. We love to think of our juice cleanses as not only a physical gift to our bodies but an opportunity to take inventory and cultivate awareness in our lives. 

By and large we are creatures of habit so we find these rituals and routines really helpful for our personal growth and development. As you all know we encourage seasonal cleansing as it acts as a really helpful marker for the passing of time, connects us to the rhythms of nature and prepares us for the season ahead. Why not take this one step further and cleanse with the Summer Solstice? Don't let the stereotypes deter you, you don’t have to be a pagean witch to celebrate! Using dates like Summer Solstice or Spring Equinox around which to plan your cleanses feels so special and connected. We also find it feels much more intentional, thus holding us accountable. 

Summer Solstice is a celebration of light, let’s embrace this energy and direct it towards something productive and impactful. Whether you are cleansing today or not, here are some ways you can mark this day and make the most out of it:

1. Get outside and walk in nature.  Nature calms anxiety and quietens the mind. If possible leave your phone at home. It's amazing how even on a walk we are still plugged into something, listening to a podcast or music. 

2.  Journalling. Write it out. This is a perfect time to meditate on your goals, circumstances and journal out any stuck emotions. We also like to set our intentions for the season ahead. 

3. Embrace human connection. Too often we find that self discovery is isolating, we hear you need to be alone to grow. Connecting with others is another form of self care, engaging with our loved ones and spending quality time is always much needed. 

4. Make them your own rituals. Whether you want to make a practice out of cleansing over the solstice, running a bath, lighting some candles and journaling, or you want to go for a big walk in nature and book in an al fresco dinner with lots of friends. However you wish to celebrate it is a really fun, happy occasion to join in on!
