Watermelon and Strawberry Lemonade

I found this recipe and Kathleen made it a few weeks ago. She LOVED it --and shared some with Don, too! We did freeze the watermelon and used frozen strawberries. She also used Sprite, since we had it. We have a smoothie maker, so made this and froze the extra. Living in TX, I think this will be a weekly drink. We will try using Splenda the next time we make it and diet soda.

Watermelon and Strawberry Lemonade

8 cups cubed and seeded watermelon
1 cup strawberries, halved
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup white sugar
2 cups water
(you may substitute Sprite or 7-up instead of water)

Combine all the ingredients and blend until it is smooth.  A fun trick I have learned, is to cube the watermelon and freeze it ahead of time. Then you have a tiny bit of a slushy feel - my favorite!!
