Nigeria is Hot; Watermelon is a Hit!

I grew up in Nigeria, and it is scorching hot; one of the things that save the day is fresh, delicious watermelon. A slice goes a long way! I may be wrong, but I do think we get watermelon all year round in Nigeria! We ate them a lot, too, though I never made them into lemonades. Fortunately, this easy watermelon lemonade is another way to enjoy my favorite fruit!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • Do you need sugar to make this watermelon lemonade?

Fortunately, with this recipe, we can loudly and proudly say, FORGET SUGAR – yeah, fo*k refined sugar or sugar syrup, because we do not need it!

  • Can I make this watermelon lemonade ahead?

Oh, yes! You can absolutely make this healthy watermelon lemonade ahead. The best tip would be to keep the watermelon juice and lemon juice separate. Then, mix them whenever you wish to serve. I wouldn’t keep these for more than 4 days, though!

  • How do you make watermelon taste good

I think we all can agree that watermelon already tastes great. However, a little lemon or ginger can give it an excellent flavor! Mint or basil are some herbs that equally go well with watermelon.

Healthy Watermelon Lemonade


Description

This watermelon lemonade recipe is all you need to set the ball rolling for the perfect drink of all time! It is refreshing, invigorating, and immune-boosting. With 10 minutes under your belt, you are ready to enjoy the most deliciously nutritious drink!


Ingredients

Scale

1 big lemon (peeled)

2 (tipping) cups of cut watermelon (or just 3 cups)

1-tablespoon honey

2 cups of water


Instructions

  1. Wash the fruits before cutting even though they may appear “clean.”
  2. Peel the lemon and remove some of the visible seeds. Then add the lemon to the blender blend with 1 cup of water until smooth. Sieve with a strainer; it makes about one cup plus another half cup of “lemon juice water.” Set aside.
  3. Add the cut watermelon, add to the blender, and add a cup of water, blend, and sieve, just as you did with the lemon.; this makes about 2 cups of watermelon juice.
  4. Add 2 cups of watermelon juice into a big jar (or bowl), plus ½ cup of the lemon juice water alongside one tablespoon of honey, stir well to combine.
  5. This recipe makes about 3 cups or 2 (12 oz) jars; serves three people (one person to a cup of drink). An adult can drink a 12 oz jar, that’s a cup and a half!)

Notes

You can add up to ¾ cup of the lemon water if you this lemonade a little tangier.

Usually, I would use the remaining lemon water to make another set of watermelon lemonade.

If you want it sweeter, add more honey, though I think one tablespoon is well over enough for this quantity! You can add or subtract; make it your way.

Double this recipe to make more.

Swap honey for monk fruit; a non-calorie sweetener!
