Watermelon Limeade


Let summer never die!

I'm savoring these last few days of summer. With school starting next week, I'll have to leave this dream I've been living in. I'll be waking up and actually getting up and at 'em during typical hours. I'm optimistic this routine will bring good things and I'm forever grateful for the summer I thought I'd never have, hopeful for more to come.

This watermelon limeade was a hit with both the kids and I so we made it one more time before summer ends. If you, like me, are savoring this unofficial end of summer weekend, grab a watermelon and a lime and make yourself a pitcher. Pour a glass and take outside, it's supposed to be hot in Seattle this weekend!

Watermelon Limeade

Watermelon (mini)
Limes (3 big ones)
This will yield the amount seen in the photos above.

1. Cut watermelon into small chunks
2. Place chunks into tall container
3. Using hand mixer, purify chunks into a liquid (or you could use a blender)
4. Pour liquid through strainer into a pitcher (note: you will need to use rubber spatula to push liquid through the strainer)
5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 until all of the watermelon has been purified and strained into pitcher 
6. Squeeze limes into pitcher to taste
7. Add ice


  1. This looks amazing! I have to try this before summer is over (which is the end of Sept, in my opinion...)!

    1. End of September in my opinion too! Tell me if you do try it!
