Watermelon Mint Lemonade Recipe

SHARE:

This refreshing watermelon mint lemonade is super quick and easy to prepare. You can play with the amount of water, mint, lemon and optional sweetener to make it just right for your taste buds.

There are a ton of ways to use watermelon, other than trying to slice through the gigantic, wobbly, round thing. If you're like me, you'll buy the watermelon pre-cut. If you're a little more adventurous here are nine original ways to cut a watermelon.

Before we move on to the recipe, let's talk a bit about watermelon. Not only is watermelon difficult to work with in it's raw form, but the seeds just irk me. In fact, I literally just gasped when I saw someone eat a watermelon seed in that video. Remember that old wives tale that says a watermelon will grow in your belly if you swallow it?

It's easy to look past those two things when you learn all that watermelon has to offer.

Watermelon goes a long way and can feed up to three dozen people from just one watermelon. If you slice it right, it's a perfect summer party snack. With the heat, it's important to stay hydrated. Did you know that one big slice of watermelon equals eight ounces of water?

Watermelon is not just for summer, though. It's available year round and is packed with citrulline, more lycopene than a fresh tomato, potassium, magnesium, thiamine and Vitamin A, among other vitamins and nutrients. Best of all there is zero saturated fat, zero cholesterol and zero sodium in a standard serving of watermelon.


Today we're going to show you an easy recipe for Watermelon Mint Lemonade, but there are so many things you can do with watermelon. I had no idea!

Check out these recipes from The National Watermelon Promotion Board. There are recipes for everything from Watermelon Walnut Bagel Spread to Flank Steak with Watermelon Bourbon Glaze. I'm looking forward to trying the various watermelon salsas and sauces.

And how about that Grilled Cheese Arugula Panini with thinly sliced watermelon? Watermelon pairs so well with cheese, among many other things.

This refreshing watermelon mint lemonade is super quick and easy to prepare. You can play with the amount of water, mint, lemon and optional sweetener to make it just right for your taste buds.
