Strawberry Watermelon Lemonade

I saw this recipe on Sweet Little Peanut today and just had to reblog it! The warm weather is finally here and this is the perfect drink for a hot sunny day. With more than 90% water content, watermelon has a special cooling effect which helps fight the effect of heat.

8 cups cubed seedless watermelon
1 cup strawberries, halved
½ cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup sugar, agave or maple syrup (or use less for a more tart drink)
2 cups water

Combine all the ingredients in a blender or mixer and blend until smooth. (I like to add a little mint as well).
