Ingredients

  • 5 cups watermelon juice ~10 cups seedless watermelon, cubed/1 medium watermelon
  • 5 limes juiced (or ½ cup lime juice; substitute lemon juice for watermelon lemonade)
  • 3 limes zest
  • handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 2-3 cups seltzer water or regular water, if preferred

Instructions

To make Sparkling Watermelon Limeade:

  • Add watermelon to a blender and blend until smooth. Strain blended mixture through a fine mesh strainer and set aside.
  • Add mint and lime zest to a pitcher, then crush with a muddler.
  • Add 2-3 cups of ice to the pitcher. Pour in lime juice and strained watermelon juice, along with seltzer water, to taste. Stir with a wooden spoon.
  • Serve with mint sprigs and a lime wedge and enjoy!

To make Sparkling Watermelon Limeade Popsicles:

  • Pour into popsicle molds and freeze (6-8 hours, or overnight).
  • Once frozen, remove desired pops from mold and enjoy! (You may need to allow pops to sit outside of the freezer for a minute or two in order to easily remove from mold.) You can leave pops in molds in freezer for a few days.
  • For longer storage, remove from molds and place in individual freezer bags, or in an airtight plastic container with layers of wax paper or plastic wrap in between. Will last 3 to 4 weeks stored this way.
  • Yields 8 cups sparkling watermelon limeade, or ~16 watermelon limeade popsicles.
