Watermelon Lemonade/Limeade ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฅค๐Ÿ’ฆ

Watermelon + Lemonade = Nothing better on a hot summer day!

๐Ÿ’ฆ Hereโ€™s a fun fact: watermelon is 92% water โ€“ which means it can help keep you hydrated AND feeling full between meals. It also can aid in digestion.

๐Ÿ’š Its high water content means itโ€™s lower in calories โ€“ 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.

๐Ÿ‘€ Lycopene has been shown to be protective against certain cancers, heart disease, and age-related vision loss.

๐Ÿค— 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!

๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‰ Raise your hand if you LOVE watermelon!! When was the last time you had some?

๐Ÿ‹Fresh Lemons & Limes contain a LONG list of nutritional benefits thanks to their antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals!

๐Ÿฆ  Lemons & Limes can help boost your immune system, ease your digestive system, and they even contain anti-cancer compounds.

๐Ÿ’š 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.

๐Ÿฅค One way to get more lemon in your life is to drink this DELICIOUS fresh homemade Watermelon Lemonade throughout the hot summertime!

๐ŸŽฏ 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.
