My 3 year old is obsessed with watermelon. He stands on a chair next to the counter and devours the watermelon as I cut it. He can eat the entire watermelon by himself if I’m not careful. In other words, it’s a miracle this Frozen Watermelon Lemonade ever even happened.
And we’re so glad that it did happen. It’s perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day and makes a great treat for both kids and adults alike. Unlike many frozen watermelon drinks, this one is non-alcoholic so you can share it with your kids. Or not. No judgement from me if you save it all for yourself. I’m sure you already share with them plenty. But if your kids are anything like mine then they’ll end up finding it anyway. You see, I swear my kids are part bloodhound. I can’t hide anything from them. They always end up sniffing it out and finding anything I try to hide.
I remember when I was a kid my mom would often bring a large bowl of watermelon outside for my sisters and I to eat while we played. She would set it on the picnic table and we would help ourselves to it in between cartwheel contests and swinging on the swings. I find myself doing the same. This Frozen Watermelon Lemonade now occasionally replaces the chopped watermelon. My kids sit to the side of their sandbox and down their lemonade.
Perfect Summer BBQ Recipe
We’ve been hitting 100 degree temperatures this last week and I’ll tell you that this Frozen Watermelon Lemonade is such a perfect treat for those unbelievably hot days. It cools you off plus it’s really just delicious. It would be a perfect drink to accompany any backyard BBQ this summer. This frozen lemonade looks great in a mason jar with a straw and a lemon slice. Your guests would love it!
Other recipes that would make a great appearance at a summer backyard BBQ are Cucumber Avocado Salad , Grilled Pineapple, and Grilled Veggie Kabobs. Obviously no one would mind a dessert either, so give this German Chocolate Cake recipe a try. Like all my recipes, it is gluten-free and free from eggs, dairy, peanuts, and cashews!
