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.


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.

 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


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!
