Watermelon Lemonade


If you’re anything like me, this summer you’ve been lugging a large watermelon home from the grocery store or farmers’ market only to wonder how you’re going to go about storing the massive gourd.

A few weeks ago, I decided I would use a portion of each one and turn it into a cool and refreshing drink. It helps me with the storage issue and gives the kids something different to quench their thirst with.

Loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C and K and anti-inflammatory properties, watermelon is not only sweet and juicy but also really good for you. I’ve managed to pare the sugar down to just half a cup and I’m thinking it might even be easily replaced with honey, although I’ve yet to try that.

What are you drinking to keep cool these days?
