Watermelon Drink & Sorbet




Watermelon has to be one of my all time favorite things! When you get a good one, there is just nothing like it. Jed seems to really enjoy it too. So I decided to make some toddler friendly recipes for him. I like that it's mostly just watermelon in a different form. He likes them, and I like them too, so It's a win-win! See the recipes below!

Watermelon Drink 

This recipe is incredibly simple to make. You can modify it to your preference for example if you have a really great watermelon, you don't need sugar, but if you have a not so great one, you can add some.

Ingredients

Watermelon (4 cups)
Water (1cup)
Lemon Juice
2 tbl of sugar (optional)

I don't make a lot of the juice, just enough for about a few days or the week. So you can double the recipe if you want more.

Directions
 Cut the watermelon into cubes and measure out 4 cups. Blend until it is smooth. Then add water and half a lemon. You can add sugar if desired.

This taste best after it is cold. I also like to put salt on the rim of the cup, which my husband says is awful, and a total mexican thing! Try it! You might like it. I like salt with my watermelon :)

Watermelon Sorbet

4 cups of watermelon
1 Lime

Directions

Cut up your watermelon into cubes and freeze overnight. Once it is completely frozen put in the blender or food processor. Blend and add lime juice until you have a sorbet consistency.

There you have it! Two very simple recipes :) Enjoy the rest of your summer, our seems to be over here in NY!
