A watermelon lemon smoothie is the perfect way to showcase and enjoy what’s great about summer. Basically, it’s delicious and helps you stay cool on the hottest of days. So how can you go through the summer without watermelon … and lemonade?
Combine the two, and you have the most refreshing drink in town. Seriously, this drink is so good my husband and I both wanted more. Unfortunately, I only got enough watermelon to make one for each of us.
It’s a delicious drink that goes with a meal. Or you can make them for an afternoon pick-me-up. It’s basically good at any time of day. Another delicious summer drink is this lemonade smoothie.
I’m not a huge fan of blazing hot, humid weather, but these watermelon lemon smoothies make it tolerable. They cool you from the inside out.
I have fond memories of eating watermelon from a very early age. A wave of nostalgia washes over me every time I taste it.
My grandfather grew watermelons on his farm, and they were the best I’ve ever had. I’ll never forget those hot summer days when he and another strong person would carry one of the just-picked watermelons over to the concrete picnic table to cut it. Everyone would stand and watch in anticipation of biting into the juicy melon.
It was so delicious and refreshing. Because of this, I look forward to watermelon season, even though I have to put up with the hot weather that comes with it.
We didn’t even think about the health benefits other than the fact that we quenched our thirst with the naturally sweet deliciousness. But there are quite a few benefits.

It also contains quite a few other vitamins that keep your body in good form, so you need to take advantage of watermelon season and eat as much as you can.
Lycopene is good for you on so many levels. It’s promotes healthy arteries by helping to prevent them from getting clogged by plaque. And in some cases, it helps reduce blood pressure. In other words, lycopene is a heart-healthy nutrient.
