Watermelon Lemonade

Every summer I become obsessed with Watermelon.  I love it. 

And for the last few years I’ve been the only person in the house to eat it.  I buy an entire watermelon, eat as much as I possibly can and then toss whatever I can’t consume.

This year though, I finally have another watermelon lover!  My 11 month old LOVES watermelon.  He’s as obsessed with it as I am and if he sees me eating it, he has to eat it too!

This year, because there is more than just myself consuming them, I’ve purchased several.  And after a few of them I decided that a fruity watermelon drink sounded pretty tasty in my mind.

So I hopped onto Pinterest and found a recipe for Watermelon Lemonade.  DING DING DING!!

Lauren over at Healthy.Delicious. has a great recipe that she came up with herself and it was a hit among us all!

It’s simple, delicious and the perfect drink on a warm afternoon while watching the kids play outside.
