Turn your fresh watermelon into a cooling and delicious drink. Lightly sweet and so refreshing, this is a fun and easy treat to make after a day in the sun.
Make Watermelon Agua Fresca:
4 cups chilled, chopped and seeded watermelon (I use seedless watermelon to make things easier)
1 cup water
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon or more honey, optional (if your watermelon isn't sweet enough)
1. Add chopped watermelon, 1 cup water and lime juice to blender. Blend on high until smooth. Strain through a mesh colander, if desired.
2. Chill and serve over ice. less
Summer heat can be tough, especially when the mercury cranks past 100 degrees. So whether you're keeping cool at home or need to chill out after steamy outdoor activities, it can be great to have a few fruity, fun, and, best of all, chilly recipes up your sleeve. These fun summer treats are simple enough that you can make them with the kids. And from designing their own popsicles to creating striped, fruit-flavored ice, kids will have a blast (and maybe learn something too!). Since they're all pretty healthy, you can also feel great about your kids cooling down with one of these nutritious treats.
