Food for Dentistry Part 1 – Watermelon Mint Drink

Watermelon Mint Drink

After the anesthesia wore off from having all four of my wisdom teeth pulled yesterday, I started exploring completely liquid options for sustenance to avoid chewing something the wrong way and losing stitches or developing the dreaded dry socket.  I’m hoping it will also prove to be a great weight-loss plan for the next couple days.

Here’s my first creation, which I was going to call Percocet Punch, but then realized that wouldn’t be nearly as funny to anyone not currently on percocet.


  • ½ chilled seedless baby watermelon, skinned and sliced into wedges
  • ½ lime juiced
  • 7 – 10 fresh mint leaves (plus more for garnish)


Place all ingredients into blender and blend until well mixed.  Serve with extra mint for garnish. (Make mental note that vodka would make a great addition once you’re no longer on medication).
