Watermelon lemonade: A cool, refreshing, healthy drink of watermelon juice and lemons or limes. Put a touch of salt on the glass rim for an extra burst of flavor.



  • 1/4 of a large, seedless watermelon, diced (preferably cold)
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice or lime juice
  • 3 tbsp of raw agave nectar (or to taste) - OPTIONAL See Note 1
  • Coarse sea salt and fresh lime wedges for garnish


  1. Combine watermelon, lemon juice and agave in a blender
  2. Blend until smooth and refrigerate until ready to serve
  3. Before serving, place sea salt on a small plate, wet the rim of the cups with a fresh lemon or lime wedge and gently dab it into the salt until all the rim is covered.
  4. Alternatively, pour some agave on a small plate, turn a glass upside down on the agave, so the rim gets covered in agave, then repeat on the salt plate.
  5. Pour the cold watermelon lemonade, over ice.
  6. Garnish with a lemon wedge, if desired


  1. If you like your drink more on the sour side like we do, reduce the amount of agave or skip it altogether.
