Watermelon Lemonade/Limeade 🍉🍋🥤💦
Watermelon + Lemonade = Nothing better on a hot summer day!
💦 Here’s a fun fact: watermelon is 92% water – which means it can help keep you hydrated AND feeling full between meals. It also can aid in digestion.
💚 Its high water content means it’s lower in calories – but even so, it packs some surprising nutrition. In addition to containing vitamin C, it has carotenoids that convert to vitamin A, as well as lycopene, which has a long list of potential health benefits.
👀 Lycopene has been shown to be protective against certain cancers, heart disease, and age-related vision loss.
🤗 Here are some tips to get more of it in your diet: add it to drinks (like this one!), salads, and smoothies, or just enjoy it as a snack!

🍋Fresh Lemons & Limes contain a LONG list of nutritional benefits thanks to their antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals!
🦠 Lemons & Limes can help boost your immune system, ease your digestive system, and they even contain anti-cancer compounds.
💚 Plus, they are good for heart health, may help prevent stroke, can lower blood pressure, and they may contain compounds that help control your weight.
🥤 One way to get more lemon in your life is to drink this DELICIOUS fresh homemade Watermelon Lemonade throughout the hot summertime!
🎯 ALWAYS use freshly squeezed lemon/lime juice from an actual fresh lemon/lime. Bottled lemon juice from the store will give your lemonade a strange metallic or overly acidic taste.
➡️ Here Are 22 Reasons to Drink Lemon Water Daily
- 8 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 4 cups ice
- a handful of fresh mint leaves
- watermelon slices
- lemon or lime wedges
Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper. Lay your watermelon cubes in a single layer on the prepared tray. Freeze for at least 3 hours.
Place your frozen watermelon cubes, lemon/lime juice, honey, and ice into a high-speed blender.
Blend until smooth.
If you like it a bit more sour, then add more lemon/lime juice to taste.
Serve your cold watermelon lemonade immediately or refrigerate for later on. Stays good for about 24 hours in the fridge. Give it a stir before serving.
