Refreshing Sugar Free Watermelon Lemonade

Recently we have been getting the typical few days of summer, few days of winer in London. So, anytime those days of summer arrive we love making refreshing recipes to keep us hydrated into the sun.

We had bought some fresh watermelon and some other ingredients for a making a natural bubblegum nice-cream. To only realise we already had some watermelon at home! We decided instead of making two loads of bubblegum nice-cream, we will make up another good for you treat.

This is where the lovely, sugar free watermelon lemonade came from.  We had found various amounts of recipes for pink lemonade, but were astonished with the amount of sugar added to them.

Personally, we find watermelon a sweet enough fruit, but sometimes with its high water content it can become bland, which is why the added agave nectar is a goodun!

We also decided to add in some mint as we are a big lover of mojitos, and mint seems to sweeten up most fruits! Which is also where the raspberries come in.  Not only does it add to the colour it also makes the drink naturally sweet!

So, sit back and relax with this refreshing drink! If like this recipe or any other one of ours you’ve made we would like to see your creations! Tag us in on Instagram using the hashtag Cookingwiththefoodaholics
