Rosemary Melonade

This exotic blend sips like a fancy cocktail, but skips the hefty bar tab. Watermelon is hydrating and provides vitamin C, while rosemary contributes awesome flavor. Throw in the jalapeño for an added kick.


3 cups chopped seedless watermelon, chilled

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

1 lemon, peeled and seeded

1 1⁄2 teaspoons finely chopped rosemary

1⁄2 cup frozen pineapple

1⁄4 cup frozen strawberries

5 drops alcohol-free liquid stevia, plus more to taste (optional)

Optional Boosters

1⁄2 cup frozen raw cauliflower florets

1⁄2 teaspoon cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil

1⁄4 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeño chile


Throw all of the ingredients into your blender and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until well combined.
