We came home with 2 watermelons from the Farmer's Market this weekend. Phoebe entered a watermelon roll at the last minute and couldn't bare to part with her prized melon.
On the way home, she came up with the following "recipe" - it's actually just a kid-made version of Watermelon Agua Fresca. Quite easy and tasty. I think we might be making it in my classroom next year.
Phoebe's Watermelon Juice
*watermelon chunks (about 2 large ones per serving)
*a little bit of water (I'm guessing we used about 1/4-1/2 cup)
*crystalized sugar sprinkles (pink or red is best)
Step 1: Mash watermelon and water together in a bowl.
Step 2: Add 3 shakes of sprinkles. If you don't have sprinkles, you could use sugar, but that's not as much fun. Mix up real good.
Step 3: Pour into a glass with ice. Yum! Phoebe also recommends adding some lemonade if you have it.
Adult Note: This version is a little chunky, but it tastes great. Eric and I like to add some lime juice and a pinch of salt to ours.
