Watermelon lemonade

So excited to post my next watermelon recipe, this one is a simple non-alcoholic lemonade.  If you’re looking for something boozy – you can totally add vodka or rum, depending on your preference in flavour.   And, I will also be posting a boozy watermelon cocktail next week.

But for now, just enjoy this sweet little treat.

YIELD – Approx. 6 cups

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups of cubed seedless watermelon
  • 3 cups cold water (feel free to substitute soda water if you want something with a little sparkle)
  • 1/3 fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • Ice, lemon slices and fresh mint sprigs for serving

DIRECTIONS

  1. add the watermelon cubes to a blender (I used the blender attachment for my magic bullet) and pulse until fully pureed. Pour through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl. There should be approximately 2 cups when done.
  2. add the fresh squeezed lemon juice and the coconut sugar to the watermelon mixture and stir until sugar is dissolved.
  3. In a pitcher, add ice cubes, a few lemon slices and a mint sprig. Then pour the water and the watermelon mixture into the pitcher and stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
  4. Add ice, a sprig of mint and a slice of lemon to glasses and serve.

      I know what you mean about the weather. It’s not great here either – supposed to snow. But I figure if I just keep making all things inspired by spring/summer some roe later it’s gotta happen 😉
