This crisp and refreshing watermelon limeade is perfect for a hot summer day. With a tasty balance of sweet and tart, it's also great as a watermelon lime slushie!

On hot summer days, everybody needs a cool drink or two to stay hydrated. Most of the time, the kids are outside playing and Hubby and I are either building something in the garage or working in the garden. 

When we take a break from working and playing, we usually enjoy some cold filtered water, Copycat Kool-Aid, or Homemade Lemonade. When we recently harvested a bumper crop of watermelons, I thought it would be fun to make a new summertime drink. 

Watermelon limeade is delicious and refreshing on its own, or you can add a splash of tequila or coconut rum. To turn it into a natural watermelon lime slushie, just freeze it in ice cube trays and blend!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Working a little at a time, puree the watermelon in a blender until smooth.
  2. Strain the watermelon juice through a mesh strainer to get rid of any seeds that might have slipped through. You want to end up with 4 cups of watermelon juice after it’s all been blended and strained (if you have a little more, that’s fine).
  3. Put the watermelon juice into a glass or plastic pitcher.
  4. Add the lime juice and sugar, and stir gently until the sugar dissolves.
  5. Pour into glasses and serve!

Notes

To make a watermelon lime slushie, pour watermelon limeade into ice cube trays and freeze. Blend on the "Smoothie" setting until just blended.
