Hey, Alicia here again. It’s watermelon season and I am loving it. We can’t get enough of that delicious red fruit around here. If my son is with me when we go grocery shopping, and he sees the watermelon he insists we get one. Actually, he tries to insist that we get more than one, but that’s a bit more than we can eat. I’m inclined to oblige to his request for at least one watermelon because of the great health benefits watermelon provides. Besides being a great source of water (most are about 90% water), it is chalk full of potassium, vitamin C and vitamin A!
And while watermelon is great to just eat on its own, it’s fun to mix it up every once in awhile.
That’s when this idea for a watermelon drink came to my head. And I couldn’t get it out so I decided I had just better make it. I was so thrilled when it came out delicious! I have had to make it 3 times because the first 2 times I didn’t really measure in order to share it with you all.
It's a fast and easy drink to make. Just 3 ingredients: watermelon, lemon lime soda, and lime juice. When blended together these make such a refreshing drink! If you want an option with less sugar, try using a lemon lime flavored sparkling water. Click the button below to get the recipe!
But seriously it’s so good and a perfect drink to end your summer with. It would also be an easy drink to make in a large quantity for a party. If you have an immersion blender you could even make it directly in the watermelon rind for a fun presentation of the punch.
So what do you think? Will you be giving this watermelon treat a try?
Get what you need to make this delicious punch.
