Watermelon Limeade

 Watermelon Limeade ~ Delicious, fresh #Non-Alcoholic drink ! #DrinksRecipe #WatermelonRecipe #Limeade
I have a juicer which we - that is, Cheri and I - have used for so many different kinds of drinks. From simple single juices to delicious green smoothies.

Both of us really enjoy the freshness of the drinks and especially the ease of using a juicer. So, if you do not have one yet, go on and get one ! Most fruits and vegetables just get chopped and then chucked into the machine - fresh juice on one side and all the pits, peel etc in the bowl normally at the back of the juicer.

For this Watermelon Limeade , I actually did remove the peel and all the white parts, before placing them in the juicer, as it does not contribute to the flavor at all {the white would actually make the juice bitter} .
