Simply Watermelon Lemonade

I simply love watermelon.
& I simply love lemonade.
Little did I know that the two flavors combined are simply amazing.


Not too long ago...
We were at a restaurant that offered watermelon lemonade
instead of the traditional strawberry lemonade that you can find almost anywhere.
Hubby ordered one out of curiosity.
It. was. d e l i c i o u s.
They garnished it with fresh watermelon,
but used watermelon syrup instead of fresh watermelon in the drink itself.
I ordered one on my birthday at another restaurant,
and my taste buds were in heaven once again.
Note: This restaurant also used watermelon syrup instead of fresh watermelon.

Hubby bought a container of pre-cubed watermelon just to munch on
since watermelon is such a great summer treat...
Somehow it became buried behind things in the fridge,
and we almost forgot about it.
Thankfully we found it just in the nick of time,
& began eating it while it was still good.
I realized we wouldn't be able to finish the whole container before it went bad,
and was kinda sad about it...
Then I remembered how delicious watermelon lemonade was,
remembered that we had Simply Lemonade in the fridge,
& decided to make some to use up more of the watermelon while we still could.
It was a thousand times better than either restaurant version,
& the best part...
It was simply lemonade & watermelon.
No watermelon flavoring.
All natural.
There were no leftovers.
Didn't have to toss any uneaten watermelon out (:

Without further ado...
The recipe.

1.75 liter bottle of Simply Lemonade (you will have some left over)
4-5 cups watermelon chunks

Fill blender with 4-5 cups of watermelon chunks. Pour Simply Lemonade in the blender over the watermelon chunks until the 6 cup mark. Blend until smooth. Taste, then add more watermelon or lemonade to your liking if needed. Enjoy!

  1. Hi, Marisa! This lemonade looks YUMMY! What a smart trick to use pre-made lemonade to save time. And Simply Lemonade tastes from scratch! We'll have to use this one Labor Day weekend.
