Watermelon Lemonade

June 11, 2010

Nothing says summer like an ice cold glass of lemonade. But fresh squeezed watermelon lemonade is a treat that combines the tartness of lemons with the sweetness of watermelon to in a combination that just clicks. It’s a combination that just works together and is so deliciously sweet and refreshing.

Ingredients

1 10 oz bottle of pure lemon juice (try Minute Maid or 365 organic brand from Whole Foods Market)

*You can use the equivalent in fresh squeezed lemons. You will need the juice of approximately 7 lemons

6 cups red seedless watermelon

6 cups water

3/4 cup sugar, cane sugar, Splenda or Stevia

Directions

In a blender, puree watermelon. Pour watermelon juice through a strainer to remove larger pieces and any seeds that may be in the mixture. Pour watermelon juice back into blender, slowly blend lemon juice in. Continue blending until mixture is smooth.

Transfer mixture to a pitcher; add sugar and water and mix until well blended. Taste mixture, add additional sugar if necessary. Serve in a cup over ice, garnish with watermelon piece if desired.
