Refreshing Watermelon Drink

My BFF shared this simple recipe with me, and now it's a favorite in our house, too!
  • 1 "personal-size" seedless watermelon
  • 1 empty plastic pitcher with a lid (at least 40 oz.) 
  • 1 32 oz. empty bottle (a clean Gatorade bottle works perfectly)
  • ice & water
  • Truvia or other sweetener
Cut up the watermelon into chunks, dicarding the green rind.
Add ice to the empty Gatorade bottle, almost to the top.

Put about 1/2 of the chunks into a blender and "liquefy" it for a few seconds.
Go ahead and add the rest of the chunks and "liquefy" it again.
Pour the pureed liquid into the pitcher.

Add cold water to that, about 3/4 full.
Add about 1/2 cup of the watermelon liquid, put the cap on & shake it up!

Sweeten to taste with your favorite no-calorie sweetener & shake! Enjoy!
