Watermelon strawberry lemonadeLemonade is one of the most common drinks around the world. It has such a long standing history that it has been made and altered in so many ways that it can be changed to fit anyone’s taste. Long gone are the days when we used to be called in by mom or grandma for some cold lemonade on a hot summer day.
The classic recipe for lemonade included three simple ingredients: lots of water, a lot of lemons and a medium amount of sugar. But things have evolved since then and people have started creating their own recipes for lemonade, something that fits their liking better.
One of the most unique recipes for lemonade is the watermelon strawberry version. Watermelon strawberry lemonade is a delicious and healthy drink. The ingredients for this drink are watermelon, strawberries and lemons, which makes it a great source for vitamins.
The recipe for watermelon strawberry lemonade includes 8 cups of watermelon that has had its seeds removed, in order to avoid accidental damage to the blender. The strawberries should be cut in half and the lemons squeezed to get fresh juice out of them. These three ingredients are placed in a blender along with 1 cup of white sugar and water and blended until the mix is smooth enough.
The final concoction has a bit of a creamy finish and is sweet enough, but mostly due to the fruit and less because of the sugar. You shouldn’t add too much sugar and it is actually better to avoid placing too much in the blender. It is better to put in some more if the final drink is not sweet enough.
The combination of watermelon, strawberries and lemon is great for any age, keeping the refreshing nature of lemonade while adding a really big plus on taste, color and texture.
