 This quick watermelon lemonade recipe will brighten any summer day. 

It’s cold and refreshing, and es together in less than 5 minutes.

Plus, since this watermelon lemonade is made in the blender instead of a juicer, the watermelon still retains it’s fiber, which is ideal. And, despite it’s luscious sweetness, watermelon is mostly water and has a low glycemic load, so it won’t cause a large spike in blood sugar. 

Benefits

Ingredients
  1. 4 cups watermelon, cubed*
  2. 1 tbs. fresh squeezed lemon juice (more to taste)
  3. 6 mint leaves
Instructions
  1. Put watermelon and lemon juice in blender. Blend on medium speed until watermelon is pletely broken down into a thin slush. Taste, and if it's to sweet, add more lemon juice 1 teaspoon at a time.
  2. To serve, gently muddle 3 mint leaves in the bottom of two glasses, then pour watermelon lemonade over it.
Notes
  1. *If you're going to serve right away, ideally the watermelon would be pre-chilled in the refrigerator. If not, you can muddle mint, than add ice before pouring watermelon lemonade in glass.
  2. *You could blend the mint into the drink, ( it will taste even more amazing!) but it will turn your drink rusty brown instead of bright pink!*
