Watermelon Frappe

There isn't anything that says summer more than watermelons and around my neck of the woods people think Green River watermelons are the best!  If you are a watermelon lover, you will love this frappe!   Every post on Red Couch Recipes this week will be watermelon-related!  Try making this recipe for Watermelon Frappe; it will refresh you on a hot summer day!  Use the sweetest watermelon that you can find.  The girls in my home were fans of this frappe; the guys not so much! Tati, the blogger, said, "It's different, but I like it!"  I have had this recipe in my collection for years; unfortunately, I do not know the author of it.

Recipe for Watermelon Frappe

4 cups diced watermelon with no seeds
3-4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon rind
3 cups (24 ounces) ginger ale

Put watermelon, lemon juice and rind in blender and mix until frothy.  Pour mixture into a picher.  Add ginger ale and stir.  Pour into glassses filled with ice cubes.  Makes about six cups.  Note:  if your watermelon isn't very sweet, you may have to add a bit of sugar.  This recipe is totally adjustable!  If you like, you can add more ginger ale or lemon juice.  My son liked the frappe with more ginger ale.

Come take a break and have a sip on our deck with us!

We were in your neck of the woods just last summer and bought some of these watermelons. They were amazing and to frappe them would be refreshing and delicious. Thanks!

The color of this frappe is wonderful. I love watermelon just to eat but it's nice to have some other recipes for it.
