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!



1 big lemon (peeled)

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

1-tablespoon honey

2 cups of water


  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!)


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!
