Watermelon Limeade


Pucker up and enjoy this wonderful refreshing drink created by my son, who is definitely a foodie and enjoys creating things in the kitchen.
This is what he did.....
  • cubed a small seedless watermelon
  • juiced about 12 fresh limes
  • added sugar to taste
  • mint leaves to garnish
  1. Take the watermelon chunks and puree in the blender. You will have to do this in several batches.
  2. Pour through a strainer to catch the little white seeds and extra pulp.
  3. Pour into a large container.
  4. Add fresh lime juice.
  5. Sugar to taste.
  6. Mint leaves and ice.
Enjoy this burst of freshness, a very nice drink with beautiful color.

Variation 2-
I made lemonade from frozen concentrate according to directions and added about 8 cups of watermelon juice using the above method.....my son was not home to squeeze all those limes, so mom took that lazy way out :)
