Today I’m going to showing you a really refreshing watermelon lemonade. This is really light it’s also really healthy. but it’s perfect for those summer days. I don’t know about you but it’s really hot outside and it has been for like two weeks straight with no rain. The watermelons are on sale they’re a good price, and so I’ve been dying for some fresh cold watermelon.
The ingredients you need to make this Watermelon Lemonade are very simple and few obviously. You’re going to need the juice of a lemon and the juice of lime that’s optional I just like a bit of lime juice. You’re going to need some granulated sugar and of course water. The first thing we’re going to do is juice our lemons. I would definitely suggest getting freshly squeezed because it just makes such a big difference. Then also our lime, so we’re going to add our juice right into our blender as well as sugar.
Now we’re going to cut the big guns. there’s a really easy way to do this is you take a really sharp knife. cut off the ends flip, and you just kind of shave the skin off. when you get to the point where you really can’t reach the bottom. you just have to flip it over and then finish it off. now that it’s all shaved off I just put it on its side and you do like slices. once you have those slices you can make little cubes turn it and slice it then you got a bunch of little cubes.
Now, obviously you’re not going to use an entire watermelon for this drink. You can if you want to if you’re making a huge batch for a lot of people. However, I slice about a quarter to half of the size of the watermelon for the lemonade. Then I just eat the rest and I put in the refrigerator, because I mean that’s a lot of lemonade. So now what I’m going to do is fill my blender that has already the sugar and the lemon with the watermelon.
Now I’m going to run this through a strainer just to get all the pulp out. I have a lot of pulp the nicest of a food processor you have or juicer. The better it’s going to be in the less pulp you’re going to have. When we dump the water in the watermelon it’ll mix with the water if I can do it without messing it up.
I like to add mint to mine, so I boil some mint and loop in some water. Then I just make them into ice cubes. This tastes like Hawaii in a cup so if you want to the recipe just look below.
