Watermelon Juice

Watermelon has always been one of my favorite foods.  I can remember it being a treat in the summer to sit on the back deck and eat slices while letting the juice run down my chin.  My stepbrother and I would even have seed spitting contests.  When I was living in Denver, watermelon became part of the bedtime routine for me.  I think this was actually the birth of my bedtime snack.  I would sit in bed and eat a massive bucket of watermelon.

Now, I eat it as often as I can and try to come up with creative ways to use it.  Recently, I can up with a fun drink.  It was refreshing and the flavor combination was nice.

Watermelon Juice

1 pound of watermelon (cubed)
4 fresh mint leaves
1 tablespoon of lemon juice

In a blender, puree all ingredients until smooth.  This drink is much better if served very cold.  Chill for at least 30 minutes
