Donna Hay: Basics To Brilliance Kids

Donna Hay's pink watermelon lemonade is a retro drink with a fruity twist. Perfect for a day spent outdoors.


  • 750g seedless watermelon 

  • 3 cups ice cubes or crushed ice

  • 4 cups (1 litre) coconut water

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  • 1.

    Using a small sharp knife, remove the rind from the watermelon and roughly chop the flesh. You should have about 3 cups (500g) watermelon.

  • 2.

    Place the watermelon in a blender and blend until smooth. Strain through a sieve into a large jug, discarding any solid bits or sneaky seeds. You should have about 2 cups (500ml) juice.

  • 3.

    When you’re ready to serve, add the ice. Pour in the coconut water and lemon juice and stir with a big wooden spoon to combine. If you like, place slices of lemon and some mint leaves into serving glasses. Pour the lemonade over to serve.
