I don't know what I was thinking the other day when a bought an entire watermelon for my small family of 4. My husband and I can only eat so much watermelon and my children are so young that they don't eat much either! But I didn't want my watermelon to go to waste so I came up with the perfect solution: Fresh Watermelon Lemonade!
Oh my goodness...I love lemonade and I've tried many flavored varieties, but not much beats the taste of fresh watermelon lemonade!
You can of course make the lemonade from scratch, but I really think that Simply Lemon is a great, tart and tangy lemonade so I used this as my base for my drink.
yield 1 cup
- ½ cup Simply Lemonade (or from scratch)
- approx 1 cup seedless watermelon
- Blend watermelon chunks in a blender until it becomes nice and smooth. No need to add anything else to the blender, just put the watermelon in there and blend away. (Also, so need to take the white seeds out, those will blend right up.)
- Combine ½ cup lemonade with ½ cup watermelon juice.
- Serve over ice.
I took a glass out to my husband who was working in the yard today and he thought it was SO delicious! My kids both loved it too. And of course, so did I.
It is a little bit tart, but plenty of sweet and tastes just like summer!
