5- Watermelon lemonade

For this watermelon lemonade you only need mineral water, a few lemons or pure lemon juice from the store and some sugar or your favorite sugar substitute. The sweeter your watermelon, the less sugar you need to put to the lemonade. But that's a bit of personal preference of course. Do you also want to take this juice baby test for your little Brussels sprouts? Then add less lemon juice and do not add sugar or possibly a sweetener based on stevia. You really don't need much. Or just give them some pure watermelon juice. Delicious!

Contents

1- 1 normal sized watermelon

2-  150 ml lemon juice

3- 800-900 ml fresh water 

4- 6 tablespoon sugar

& few fresh mint sprigs

Instructions

Cut the blue watermelon and blend the flesh finely in a blender to prepare the juice. You can also use the immersion blender. If you notice that there is still a lot of pulp left behind, in that case, use a sieve. Squeeze the lemons or use store-bought lemon juice and add this to the water along with the sugar (substitute) and watermelon juice. Add some ice for an extra refreshing effect and possibly some sprigs of fresh mint. Plaice!

Notes 

This lemonade already tastes good without sugar, but people who are just sweet or want a real limo, will like it more sweeter. You can use regular sugar, but a substitute works fine in this recipe. We took cane sugar with stevia (twice as sweet) so used two tablespoons. You can also use a 0 calorie sweetener, then 1 tablespoon is often enough. Add it, stir well (important!) and taste for yourself and adjust to taste! Tasty!
