On our way home from the movie on Sunday, I had a hankering for watermelon. I asked the husband to run into the store and pick up a half cut watermelon. We munched on popcorn and M&M’s during the movie so I knew we wouldn’t really have dinner. I figured fruit would be better than snacking on chips or more popcorn.
He came out of the store with a whole watermelon. A WHOLE watermelon! And it wasn’t even a small one.
Now let me tell you, I am one who enjoys watermelon. I could eat it a big bowl of it and be just fine. But with this watermelon, it looked like we would be eating it for days. Seriously. All week long. I mean, it’s just the two of us at home. No kids yet. No out of town visitors. Just me and the husband. And now this huge watermelon.
So I decided I was going to have to be more creative because although it sometimes happens, I really hate throwing away food.
I’m going to finally try the combination of watermelon & feta using this recipe. But the first thing I decided to do was keep it simple. Way simple.
Maybe not the most foreign concept but in my thirty plus years, I had never thought to make this.
Three simple ingredients and you don’t even need a fancy juicer, a regular blender will do. A simple and quick process will give you a refreshing and nutritious drink in no time.

* To be honest, I am not the best with measuring things out when I make stuff. I just kind of go on instinct. So these measurements that I am going to give you are an estimate for one 12 oz serving. But with something like this, you can always adjust to your taste and liking.
Place about 2 cups of peeled and cubed seedless watermelon in a blender. Add 1/2 tablespoon sugar, juice from half of a lemon and a handful of ice cubes. Blend on high for approzimately 30 seconds. Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
