Watermelon Mint Limeade

Who is ready for summer? With all the craziness of the last few months I am very ready! Not only am I a mom but I am also a teacher so I am celebrating school being out. No more “distance learning!” When I think of summer, I think of watermelon. Fun fact-I HATED watermelon my entire childhood! It wasn’t until I was 17 and at a summer camp that I started liking it. I was helping in the kitchen and it was a sweltering Texas summer. I had to cut up buckets and buckets of watermelon for the campers. I was so hot and thirsty that I took a bite and it was like heaven! I’ve been a fan ever since! What better way to kick off summer than with my Watermelon Mint Limeade?!

Just 3 ingredients are transformed into the most refreshing summertime drink! My kids and I love this so much and drink it often during the hot summer months. We even love pouring it into popsicle molds for a yummy, icy treat!

How do you cut your watermelon? I like to cut off each end, carve the sides, then cut into big chunks.
After dicing it into big chunks, you blend 10-15 cups of the watermelon. Then you HAVE to strain it! I like to strain it right into a big measuring container so I can see when I get to 5 cups of juice.
Frozen limeade is a great, simple way to add lots of flavor!
I love the smell and taste of fresh mint! It adds so much brightness to this drink!
Ready to blend! Did you know that I have a Blendtec discount code? Just use “charsaves” on their website!

So delicious and refreshing! This is the drink that you’ll have on repeat all summer long! Cheers to life getting back to normal and happy summer days ahead!

1 can frozen limeade
Small handful fresh mint

Place 4-5 cups at a time of cubed watermelon in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into a mesh strainer that is over a bowl.

Continue blending and straining watermelon until you get 5 cups juice.

Add strained watermelon juice back to blender then add frozen limeade and mint. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately over ice.
