Hey, y’all. It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? I’m excited to be back though. I have lots and lots on my plate, but amazing-fruit season is upon us, so the energy to do it all is at my fingertips! Seriously, summertime fruit is my favorite. And I know a lot of you are experiencing snow right now, so summer isn’t even on your radar, but I live in Chronic Summer, a.k.a. Phoenix, Arizona. So it’s always on mine. Even though today is cloudy and, well, not hot.
And yes, even though it’s not a hot day, I decided to use up the other half of my watermelon (I know–who doesn’t eat the whole watermelon, right??) to make a drink a couple of people asked me about yesterday. I didn’t have lime, but I do have a lemon tree with a few random stragglers left on it. So I squeezed some juice into my blender, added the watermelon, and BOOM! To my surprise, it’s absolutely delicious! Tastes like lemonade. No sugar, no preservatives, no unnatural chemicals. Just delicious fruit.
Let me know if you try this recipe! Comment below, rate it, or take a photo and tag me @fruitsohard on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations. Happy eating!
- 1 small "personal" watermelon (or 1/2 regular watermelon)*
- 1-2 lemons' worth of juice
Scoop the fruit out of the watermelon and add it to a blender (like a Vitamix).
Add lemon juice and blend until smooth.
Add ice, refrigerate to chill, or enjoy right away.
*I like to refrigerate my watermelon overnight before I make this so I don't need have to refrigerate it or add ice to the blender. You could even freeze the watermelon to make this more of a slushie.
