Strawberry Watermelon Juice Lemonade

Back in the summer of 2009, I posted a recipe for one of my favorite summer drinks. Watermelon Juice Lemonade. There are quite a few health benefits to this amazing, flavorful drink and it is very quick to make and is a great nutritious addition to your raw food diet!



Watermelon is packed with antioxidants. A great source of vitamin C and also A (from it’s beta carotene) it is also rich in B6, B1 and magnesium which are needed for energy production. It has almost a 90% water content and is considered to be more nutritious than other fruits.

Watermelon is also a great source of lycopene, which is a potent carotene antioxidant. These antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which can cause much damage to us. It contains higher amounts of lycopene than any other fruit or vegetable including tomatoes. In fact, it has 40% more lycopene than tomatoes!

Watermelon is rich in electrolytes sodium and potassium and has a cooling effect on the body. It is no wonder that we find ourselves reaching for a piece on those hot summer days! Who knew it was biological? Watermelon is fat free but great for energy production. It is also more effective that carrots for protection against macular degeneration.

For this revised version of the recipe, I threw in a handful of strawberries. Oooo la la!

    My husband is a watermelon fanatic! He’s been known to (while on business trips) buy a WHOLE watermelon at a store, carry it back to his hotel room and use a plastic knife and spoon to get into it. It makes me laugh every time I get a phone call and he says he ate watermelon for dinner! LOL
    One of our favorites is to freeze chunks of watermelon and throw it into the blender to make slushies. Can’t wait to try this recipe though!

    this looks great, and for anyone hesitant about blending watermelon, I have to say that although I love good watermelon eaten as is, occasionally putting some in the blender and buzzing it up creates the most delicious drink! and adding strawberries would be a whole new level….
