This watermelon lemonade mocktail is the perfect summertime refresher to serve at brunch or on a warm afternoon! It’s paleo, AIP, and free of refined sugar.
After I transitioned to a real food diet, fun drinks kind of fell by the wayside. So much focus is given on making recipes from scratch, that we don’t really venture outside of a smoothie here and there. With summer coming up, and with Mother’s Day Brunches coming up, I wanted to make a fun mocktail style drink that everyone will love!
This watermelon lemonade mocktail is so easy to make, and it tastes absolutely heavenly! It’s the perfect combination of refreshing and sweet without any refined sugar.
The Ingredients You’ll Need
Using a seedless watermelon would be best, but you can always run in through a strainer!
You can use fresh lemon juice or a high quality bottled lemon juice.
Honey & mint
These could technically be left out, but it really adds to the overall flavor!
