Watermelon is my favorite summertime food, and this season my kids have joined me in craving this sweet delicious fruit.  I have been making this drink quite a bit so I thought I would share…

 

Sparkling Watermelon Love

Ingredients:

approximately 2 cups of watermelon, seeds removed

2 peaches, chopped

a couple mint leaves

2 TBSP raw honey

2-3 cups water, depending on the consistency you like

Pellegrino or other sparkling water (unless you prefer a smoothie-texture)

 

Combine all ingredients except for sparkling water in a blender and blend on high.  At this point you can determine if you want a thicker texture (like a smoothie, for which the sparkling water is not necessary) or a juice-type beverage.  If you want a juice, pour the contents of the blender through a strainer.  Fill a glass 3/4 way with the watermelon juice and the rest of the way with sparkling water.  Enjoy!
