Since summer officially started last week, I thought I would share a recipe for a nice and refreshing summer drink with you. What I like about this drink is that it’s not too sweet (unlike most other juices) and because watermelon is full of water, it actually quenches your thirst. I typically don’t like juices, but this blended watermelon drink is one I definitely enjoy having on a hot summer day.
Watermelon Aqua Fresca
5 cups watermelon, cubed
1 cup strawberries, hulled
juice from 1/2 a lemon
1 cup water
1 TBSP agave or honey (optional)
Put everything into a blender and process until smooth. For the most refreshing taste, make sure it is well chilled before you serve it.
This is a great drink for kids and adults and is perfect for any luncheon, party or barbecue.
