Watermelon Strawberry Lemonade

Hey, August 3rd is... 
You're gonna love this...  
  
Watermelon Strawberry Lemonade
  
I found this recipe for 🍉 🍓 LEMONADE years ago on the Blogspot, FrostedBakeshop.

The original recipe had twice as much, plus she suggested you do it in two batches. since there's just two of us... I cut it down in half for 4 servings. 

In (and out of) season, to make slushies. Substitute: 4 cups frozen melon chunks, 1/2 cup thawed Strawberry Freezer Jam, and add 2 Tbsp granulated sugar (or Whey Low Granular Sweetener substitute.) 
Then the rest is the same.









Watermelon Strawberry Lemonade
Serves: 4 

4 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
4 large strawberries, halved 
1/4 cup granulated sugar, (to taste) 
Zest of 1 lemon 
1/4 cup lemon juice (to taste)

1 1/3 cups water, CHILLED 
May substitute Sprite® 

1. Add watermelon and strawberries* to the blender. Measure in sugar.

2. Using a Microplane Zester, add the lemon zest into the blender.

3. Squeeze lemons; pour juice and HALF the water into the blender.



4. Puree the fruit until it completely liquefies. 

5. Remove cover to stir in the remaining HALF of the water. 

6. Taste to adjust with either more sugar or lemon juice. 

7. Chill for 1 hour and serve with ice. To serve the Watermelon Strawberry Lemonade in a decanter, strain first.

Option: Increase recipe servings for parties and Sonic Drive-Ins normally sells "Pebble Ice" locally at reasonable prices! 

This (and the recipe) is a great use for over-ripe melons too! Flash freeze the chunks onto plastic wrap until solid for easy removal. Store chunks in freezer bags for up to 12 months.

I Stated Earlier: In (and out of) season, to make slushies. 
Substitute4 cups frozen melon chunks, 1/2 cup thawed Strawberry Freezer Jam, and add 2 Tbsp granulated sugar (or Whey Low Granular Sweetener substitute.) Then the rest is the same.






I'm particularly stoked about using this gadget for my fresh tomatoes this season!

  1. The strawberry/watermelon lemonade was delish! I needed to put mine through a strainer before chilling.

  2. Oh, I am so glad you liked it, Karrie! Since I have not minded the pulp, I've haven't strained it before myself. However, to serve the Watermelon Strawberry Lemonade in a decanter, it would need to be strained first. So, I'll update my post to reflect that too. Thank you, Karrie, for bringing this up!
