Watermelon limeade

This refreshing beverage provides two servings of fruit and helps you to meet the daily recommended intake of 6 to 8 cups of water.


1 1/2 pounds seedless watermelon, rind removed and sliced
6 fresh limes, squeezed (about 3/4 cup juice)
1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 cups cold water


  1. Place watermelon slices into a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Over a large mixing bowl, strain the blended watermelon through a fine-meshed sieve, stirring to push through as much juice and pulp as possible.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine the lime juice and honey. Stir until honey dissolves.
  4. Pour watermelon juice/pulp, lime juice and honey mixture, and water into a pitcher. Stir well.
  5. Serve cold.
