Watermelon Lemonade

It is a scorching day today, with the temperatures in the 90's for the past few days. So when I was looking at Alisa's site with whom I am partnered this month for Taste and Create, this refreshing drink
immediately caught my attention. I had a huge watermelon at home, after stuffing ourselves with the melon, we had a little leftover. I made this simple yet refreshing drink perfect for a hot summer day!!

Before heading over to the recipe, I ask you to go and check out Alisa's recipes. She has an amazing blog and has also released her own cookbook. Her recipes are mostly vegan, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soy-free! I have also tried a few more recipes from her blog! They will be posted here soon!
Now coming to the lemonade recipe,
You need
Seedless watermelon chunks - about 6 ounces. I used about 2 cups of watermelon cubes.
Fresh lemon juice - 1/4 cup
Agave nectar - 3 tablespoons.I replaced this with 3 tablespoons of honey
Cold Water - 3/4 cups
Icecubes

In a blender add together, the watermelon chunks, lemon juice, honey/agave nectar, cold water and pulse until smooth. Fill two large glasses with the lemonade and icecubes.
Garnish with lemon slices/wedges.
It is that simple! Simple yet exotic!
