Watermelon Raspberry Lemonade

Going through my blog, I realized that beverage/drinks are something that is not updated frequently. I have to accept that I do not make too many fruit drinks or beverages, mainly for the reason that my kids love any fruit as is. I am happy with that because that ensures that they get the fiber as well from the fruits and also saves me time. But now that summer is fast approaching (not quite in my part of the world), I wanted to make some new drinks that I can use when entertaining.

This is a recipe that I found in one of my local shopping club’s summer journal. Lemonades are a sure hit with my kids, so including the fruits in lemonade sounded really fun. Also raspberry is one fruit that is not quite eaten, so I saw this as a way to include the berry.

If you don’t get raspberry, go ahead and use strawberry instead. Also this is a perfect way to use up watermelon if you buy them whole and then get bored of eating all of it.

Procedure to make Watermelon Raspberry Lemonade –

  • Place watermelon, raspberries and water in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Add sugar and lemon juice. Stir well until the sugar dissolves. I strained the juice, since it was a little too thick for my liking, but you could leave it as is in the refrigerator for at least an hour to chill.
  • Serve over ice in glasses garnished with more fruit.
