Watermelon Lemonade made by kids #kidsinthekitchen

After our tropical vacation last week Shae came home craving refreshing and exotic drinks with umbrellas and whipped cream. We compromised with this Watermelon Lemonade Drink Recipe because it was easy to create and we had all the ingredients on hand.Watermelon Lemonade made by kids #kidsinthekitchen #cookingwithkids

Easy might for us might not be for you. The hardest part of the whole process was making watermelon juice. This required a blender and straining out the pulp and seeds to get a smooth liquid. it just took minutes but depending on your own child this could be boring or too cumbersome for them.Watermelon Lemonade made by kids #kidsinthekitchen #cookingwithkids

Watermelon Lemonade

1 Part Watermelon Juice
2 Parts Prepared Lemonade (from scratch or mix)
Ice, Pitcher, Stirrer, Strainer, Blender

Start with putting your cut watermelon into a blender and process till smooth. Work that mixture through a strainer to end up with a smooth liquid suitable for drinking.

Mix together 1 part of your watermelon juice with 2 parts lemonade. Be aware that as this mixture sits it will separate making for something not very pretty to look at. Simple stir again and your lemonade is perfect.Watermelon Lemonade made by kids #kidsinthekitchen #cookingwithkidsShae did all the work again. She’s really getting more and more comfortable in the kitchen as each day goes by. She helps with many meals when it comes with prep, mixing, cooking or even serving. Honestly I really really enjoyed this Shae and I drank 6 cups worth in one day.

Watermelon Lemonade made by kids #kidsinthekitchen #cookingwithkids Encourage your own children to work in the kitchen with you. This opens their eyes to new ingredients and dishes and hopefully less stressful mealtimes. Ask your child what they would like to prepare for the next meal and get them elbows deep in the work?

What kind of dishes would your kids enjoy making?
