Limonada de Sandía (Watermelon Limeade)

One of the most refreshing ways to enjoy fresh fruit for me is by drinking a limonada de fruta, a fruit drink made with different types of fresh fruit, water, lime juice and sugar. Every stand at the beach on the Atlantic coast of Colombia serves large jars of fresh limeades. But you don’t have to be in Cartagena to enjoy a delicious limonada, especially when they are so easy to make at home!

Limonada de Sandía (Watermelon Limeade)

This Limonada de Sandía (Watermelon Limeade) is a simple mixture of watermelon, lime juice, water and a dash of sugar and makes the perfect summertime drink.

All you need to make fruit limeade at home is a blender and a sieve to strain the pulp. From there, any seasonal fruit is good to make a limonada or try one of my classic recipes below.

Buen provecho!

    Hi Erica from Spain
    First you need a good flavoured Sandia. Those we have been getting this year have no flavour at all, they are just like eating water soaked cotton wool.
