Watermelon Lemonade Recipe, super simple, great for parties and large gatherings. Very healthy and refreshing drink, made with fresh watermelon and lemon. Switch from artificial store bought drinks to this all natural energizing drink.
Watermelon Lemonade recipe an all-time favorite of mine. My son always prefers to sit with a can of soda for the meals. So, It is mommy’s job to find the ways to distract the children from unhealthy habits. Getting the children to the healthier track is not that easy in this fast food world. These are my tiny steps towards healthy habits.
I have used fresh watermelon and lemon for making this drink. Fresh fruit juices taste ultimately refreshing, like this fresh pineapple juice and kiwi milkshake. And store bought artificially flavored juices can never come closer to these.
The watermelon which I bought was sweet enough that it does not require any form of extra sugar. But If you wish you may sugar as per your requirement.
The hint of basil leaf’s flavor makes everyone to love this drink. I bet your guest would shower you with appreciations.
