Refreshing Watermelon Summer Drink



My BFF shared this simple recipe with me, and now it's a favorite in our house, too!

Ingredients:

  • 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
  • Stevia or other sweetener of choice

Directions:

Cut up the watermelon into chunks, discarding the green rind.

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. Store in the refrigerator. 

To Serve:


Add ice to the empty Gatorade bottle, almost to the top.
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 sweetener & shake!
I hope you enjoy this Refreshing Watermelon Summer Drink as much as we do.
