We love watermelon at our house, I literally have to cut my kids off or they would eat watermelon until they got sick! This summer I have been trying out fun new watermelon recipes so when I came across this recipe for Watermelon and Mint Lemonade I had to check it out. I ended up changing the recipe a bit as the mint did not appeal to my kids, and it turned out amazingly delicious.
- 2 cups watermelon juice ( I put 1/4 large watermelon through the juicer)
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
If you do not have a juicer you want to puree the watermelon in a food processor then strain the pulp out. Mix together watermelon juice, lemon juice, water and sugar. Place in fridge for about an hour to chill then serve.
Makes 4 servings. For a fun summer alcoholic drink add vodka.
