Watermelon Lemonade with Honey has been on tap at our place for the last couple of weeks. This summer, the local watermelons have been so so sweet and so so cheap, we seriously haven’t been able to get enough! Plus we still have the last of the lemons on the tree to use up, so I have been pulling out all the stops with the lemon-centric concoctions 🙂
How Easy is Watermelon Lemonade with Honey?
Well it couldn’t get much easier to be honest! You throw some cubed watermelon into the blender with some lemon juice, honey and water. Pair it with some ice cubes, and you have a seriously refreshing drink to get you through the afternoon heat. It is quicker to whip some up for yourself than it would be to head to the store and buy the ready-made stuff. Plus it is full of only the good stuff. How could you say no?
Variations: swap out the watermelon for some peaches, nectarines or other summer fruit of choice. Add in some mint, basil or thyme for a bit of a flavour twist. Have fun with it, and make it your own!
Check out these other summer drinks for a bit of inspiration:
- 1 1/2 pounds watermelon roughly chopped
- 1 cup of lemon juice
- 1/2 cup local honey or to taste
- 6 cups water
To a high powered blender add the watermelon, lemon juice, honey and 2 cups of water. Blend on high until smooth (about 2 minutes)
Pour into a large jug and add in the remaining water. Stir to combine and taste for sweetness - add more honey if needed
Serve over ice and enjoy
