Cucumber Watermelon Lemonade


By Toni Okamoto

I picked some cucumber from my garden and lemons from my tree and decided to make lemonade. Since lemonade typically has a bunch of sugar (double what I put in this recipe), I tried to break it up by using watermelon chunks as a sweetener. It was delicious and super fresh!



  • 5 large lemons, halved
  • 1/4 small watermellon, sliced
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 8 cups water


Juice lemons and pour lemon juice in a pitcher. Add the 8 cups of water, sugar, watermelon and cucumber and stir well. If you’re patient enough to let it sit overnight in the refrigerator, it is extra amazing the next morning.
