Watermelon Lemonade Recipe: ​Watermelon + Lemonade = Nothing Better on a Hot Summer Day

"Here’s a fun fact: watermelon is 92 percent water, which means it can help keep you hydrated and feeling full between meals. It also can aid in digestion," says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®.

"Always use freshly squeezed lemon/lime juice from an actual fresh lemon/lime. Bottled lemon juice from the store will give your lemonade a strange metallic or overly acidic taste."

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes and 3 hours to freeze watermelon
Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes and 3 hours to freeze watermelon
Servings: 8


  • 8 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 4 cups ice


  • fresh mint leaves
  • watermelon slices
  • lemon or lime wedges

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper. Lay your watermelon cubes in a single layer on the prepared tray. Freeze for at least 3 hours.
  2. Place your frozen watermelon cubes, lemon/lime juice, honey and ice into a blender. Blend until smooth. If you like it a bit more sour, then add more lemon/lime juice to taste.
  3. Serve your cold watermelon lemonade immediately or refrigerate for later on. Stays good for about 24 hours in the fridge. Give it a stir before serving.
