It’s cold and refreshing, and comes together in less than 5 minutes.

Plus, since this watermelon lemonade is made in the blender instead of a juicer, the watermelon still retains it’s fiber, which is ideal. And, despite it’s luscious sweetness, watermelon is mostly water and has a low glycemic load, so it won’t cause a large spike in blood sugar.

Instructions
  1. Put watermelon and lemon juice in blender. Blend on medium speed until watermelon is completely broken down into a thin slush. Taste, and if it's to sweet, add more lemon juice 1 teaspoon at a time.
  2. To serve, gently muddle 3 mint leaves in the bottom of two glasses, then pour watermelon lemonade over it.
Recipe Notes

*If you're going to serve right away, ideally the watermelon would be pre-chilled in the refrigerator. If not, you can muddle mint, than add ice before pouring watermelon lemonade in glass.
*You could blend the mint into the drink, ( it will taste even more amazing!) but it will turn your drink rusty brown instead of bright pink!*
