Watermelon Limeade {or Lemonade}

Watermelon Limeade

This sweet citrus summer concoction requires very little to no sweetener, thanks to the sweetness of the watermelon. And since it’s going to be hot the next few days here in the Seattle area, we’re consuming stuff that keeps us cool and hydrated.

This recipe works well with fresh, ripe watermelon as well as watermelon that is getting soft. So if you have some watermelon on the way out, this recipe is a great excuse to use it up. And lime or lemon juice can be used as the citrus component.

I blended the watermelon in a Vita-Mix, however any blender will work. If your blender is not able to completely liquefy the watermelon, just strain out any pieces that aren’t broken down. And any seeds too, if you’re not using a seedless watermelon.

Tip A great variation on this recipe is a watermelon slushy. Just freeze the watermelon for a few hours. Dissolve sweetener in the lime or lemon juice and then place all the ingredients in the blender and whirl away until it’s slushy.

And if you’re so inclined, this is a great base for margaritas, mojitos, and sangria!
