Ingredients

  • 8 cups seedless watermelon cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 cup water optional, see notes
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice about 3-4 limes
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar can substitute honey or agave, see notes
  • mint leaves for garnish

Instructions

  • Blend watermelon, lime juice, and water in a blender and blend until smooth. You may need to work in batches depending on the size of your blender.
  • Pour the juice through a fine mesh strainer into a large pitcher, discard any solids.
  • Stir in the sugar (may need to add more sugar or less depending on sweetness of your watermelon). Chill the drink until cold.
  • Stir to recombine before serving. Serve over crushed ice with a garnish of fresh mint leaves. This drink will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. 

Notes

You don't have to add the water to the drink. If you want a concentrated watermelon flavor then omit the water. 
If you have a very ripe, sweet, watermelon then you may not have to add any sweetener at all! Taste as you go for this recipe :)
