This delightful summer drink is sweet, refreshing & a lovely pink. The lemon juice & ginger add just the right punch. Watermelon is a wonder food which is delicious, nutritious, low-calorie, easy-to-find (well, in summer) & economical. It is high in vitamins A & C, potassium and the antioxidant lycopene which may help reduce the inflammation that contributes to asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, arthritis, etc. I like to tuck a bottle of this in the cooler to enjoy on a picnic or after a hike.

WOW this knocked my socks off! YUMMY! I tried it with lime and lemon both and I actually like them mixed best. Thank you so much, what a great recipe to have!

Since when is watermelon good for the diabetic? I've given up watermelon even though I love it. Do you know of an article about this?. I do know for sure it is high glycemic. Can anyone help?

I just made this and it's really good!!!! I left out the agave as I don't use the stuff and I don't feel that this drink needs any added sweetness. I also threw in a few mint leaves in with everything else instead of using it as a garnish. I'll be making this all the time. Thanks!

I've made a variation with lime juice instead of lemon and without the agave, is was one of the best things I've ever tasted. The citrus and ginger really are a perfect complement to watermelon. I'm certain this variation is delicious too!
