This watermelon iced tea if the perfect refreshing drink for the warmer months. It’s made with only 4 simple ingredients!
Watermelon has always been one of my favourite summer fruits. A bright shining sun, half a melon, a spoon and a captivating book make me the happiest girl on Earth.
Morocco was the perfect place to satisfy my cravings. On the way to Essaouira on the Atlantic coast, we passed many trucks loaded with enormous watermelons and streets lined up with improvised markets selling them.

And back in Marrakesh, the heat was so unbearable that I mostly ate salads and large plates of fresh melon.
Considering the heat is a ubiquitous affair these days, it seems like the perfect time to share this refreshing drink I whipped up right before we left for vacation (that was back in 2015!). Watermelon lemonade made with white iced tea. Most lemonade recipes call for lots of sugar or for simple syrup, but you don’t need any if your watermelon is tasty enough. Otherwise, I prefer to use just a few drops of agave nectar instead, which is healthier than refined sugar.
If you like, serve it with some watermelon ice cubes, which are just so ridiculously easy to prepare and won’t make your drink taste like water. Simply cube some fresh watermelon and freeze for a few hours. Voilà. And of course, you can eat them once your drink is finished!
