sweet, cool, refreshing on a hot, hot day. watermelon, mint, lemon and ice.
- Chop up all the watermelon and throw it into a blender. It is a good idea to add a little water to get the blender going. I leave the pips in as the labour of removing them is too much, however if the watermelon has black pips it is best to remove them as they won’t blend well.
- Add a handful of fresh mint leaves according to the quantity of watermelon and too taste. I love the fresh flavour of mint so I add a lot. Blend this up until it is a liquid. If you find it is too thick add a little more water, but be careful as adding too much will make it a watery juice with little favour.
- Once it has all blended, add a squeeze of lemon juice. This balances out the flavour of the sweet watermelon. Taste and adjust the lemon as you may need more if you have a large quantity of melon.
- Pour into a jug and drink or store in the fridge.
