It’s been so hot in London this week! And when it’s this hot it’s good to slow down and have a few lazy days as my son says chillax.
On a request of my lovely friend I’ve made some watermelon lemonade for the first time. It’s a lovely refreshing drink, naturally sweet and very simple to make. Watermelon is full of water and there is no need to add extra, so I’ve just added little lemon juice and lots of ice. A perfect drink for those hot lazy summer days:)
Yield: 6 servings
- 1/4 large watermelon
- 1/2 lemon, juice
- To serve:
- lemon wedges
- fresh mint leaves
- Remove the rind and seeds from the watermelon and cut into chunks.
- Place into blender together with lemon juice and blend until smooth.
- Depending on the size of your blender you might have to work in batches.
- Pour into a jug, add ice, lemon wedges and mint leaves if using.
Thank you for this Hana – delicious!! :-) After overheating on the bus back from Upper Street today, Maia and I were very happy to pop out for some watermelon to make your lovely drink & rehydrate! This is so refreshing and Maia loved making it with me – she was on deseeding duty! We all had plenty to drink and had some left over for making lollies with, too, so will continue to enjoy this in lolly form tomorrow :-) A perfect recipe for this weather xx
Hi Teresa, so happy you girls enjoyed making the lemonade! I thought it would be the right recipe for this heat we’ve been having in London this week! xx
