Fresh Watermelon Lemonade

Fresh Watermelon Lemonade Drink by 2sistersrecipes.com

The weather has been gorgeous in the South all week, and all I can think about
is making something refreshing to drink.  Fresh Watermelon Lemonade is a non-alcoholic, all natural thirst-quenching drink without any chemicals or fillers.  It’s has no sugars added, and it contains a healthy splash of vitamins C, A and B6.  Perfect!

Best of all, this watermelon lemonade takes a few minutes to make and serve.  And for me, every time I drink a glass, it leaves me feeling clean and energized.  I love that part!

Carefully chop up some seedless watermelon.

Place them into a blender and puree.  Find a pitcher to pour the puree into it.

Continue to make more, or as much as you’ll need to fill the pitcher.

Squeeze one lemon, maybe even two.  Give it a good stir.  Taste it, and see if you prefer more tartness to the lemonade.

Here is where you can add more lemons to your liking.

If it’s good, then refrigerate or serve immediately.  Pour into tall glasses with ice.  Add some fresh mint and a slice of lemon to garnish and serve!  Now I am ready for company!

This is one easiest lemonade drink you can make all summer long.  All you need is 2 ingredients, watermelon and fresh lemons.  The watermelon offers enough sweetness to it while it gives it a pretty color.  Oh, and don’t forget to add some fresh mint to give a spearmint scent while sipping the lemonade. So good.  Add a pretty straw to it, and you’ll have one cooling drink to serve family and friends.

We hope you’ll enjoy this lemonade as much as we do.  Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

    Looks refreshing! This year the only store I can find good and sweet watermelons is Publix. I have purchase 6 melons that did not have any taste at all. I think I am going to give this a try later today.
