I CAN’T be the only one who gets a GIANT watermelon only to wonder how our teeny tiny little family is going to eat the entire thing. I found this delicious recipe on a fun blog – Our Best Bites. Yum-o! I made it for some girlfriends and our kids who I had over for a play date, and again at our 4th of July party. They were a hit! And you can use the leftovers to make popsicles, too!
In a blender, combine the watermelon, strawberries, sugar and lemon juice; cover and process on high until smooth. With blender running, gradually add ice cubes until desired consistency is reached. Pour into chilled glasses and serve immediately.
Yield: 5-7 cups
And…as per my promise…I DID make this recipe and here are a few helpful tidbits:
- The ingredients are NOT set in stone…you can use more or less watermelon and strawberries.
- You can use the cute old lemon “jugs” with lemon juice from the store. They work fine and you don’t have to juice a lemon!
- I used 4 cups of ice each time.
- I’m considering making an adult beverage as well someday, but haven’t done it just yet.
Below is how much it yields and my son enjoying a taste!
