Homemade green melon lemonade

A while ago the boyfriend and I found this burrito place, I can't remember the name but they had the most delicious homemade organic melon and mint lemonade. And since it's homemade and organic it must be possible to recreate it and have it every day, right?  So I locked myself in my kitchen laboratory for a while and came up with this! The look and taste comes very close to the original drink. It's super refreshing, low on sugar and sooo good! The perfect refreshment for the current weather. Cheers!

Green Melon Lemonade


1/2 futuro melon (or any other green melon)
1/2 lime
3 tablespoons brown sugar
4 stems mint

1. Put the brown sugar, mint leaves and lime juice in the container of an electric blender and blend until smooth.
2. Cut the green melon into cubes and add them to the mint-sugar-lime mixture. Blend until smooth again.
3. Since this is a recipe for lemonade and not a smoothie add water until the drink has a watery texture. I added between 500 and 1000 ml to mine. Taste and add sugar, lime or mint if you think the drink needs it.
4. Place in the fridge for at least an hour. You can skip this step by putting some ice cubes into the blender and storing the melon in the fridge before you start, but that's totally optional.
If stored, the pulp will float up to the top of the lemonade, so give it a good shake or stir before drinking it!

For a clear lemonade let the mixture sit for an hour at least (or best over night in a sealed container) and then pour it through a kitchen towel to catch all the melon and mint pieces.

The melon lemonade can be stored in sealed containers or bottles for at least a week. Probably longer but that's the longest I managed before it was all gone. Enjoy!
