Watermelon Lemonade

Thanks to:


  • 4 cups* cubed ripe seedless watermelon (about 1/2 8-pound watermelon)
  • ¾ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (3 to 4 large lemons)
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups ice
  • Ice and fresh mint, for garnish (optional)


  1. Chop the watermelon. Place it in a blender and blend until liquid. Strain the liquid with a fine-mesh sieve back into the blender.
  2. Juice the lemons. Add the lemon juice, sugar, and ice and blend again until smooth. Pour into a pitcher. Serve garnished with watermelon and lemon slices, and a few additional ice cubes.


*For a large pitcher of 8 servings, double all ingredients (press the 2x button). You’ll need a large blender, or to make it in batches.
